Master's degree in parallel
UTC proposes to the students nearing the end of their major branch to follow one of the second year courses of the UTC Master, in parallel of their final year of engineering studies.
The students complete their engineering curriculum and follow in parallel the courses for a Master's programme in the autumn semester. They then carry out an end-of-studies project in the spring semester in a laboratory or company, which can be validated simultaneously by their engineering diploma and Master's degree courses. Students who plan to do the Master's degree in parallel with their final year of engineering studies are encouraged to take some of the first year Master's courses during the spring semester prior to their entry into the second year Master's programme.
At the end of these courses, the students are awarded their engineering diploma from UTC and their national Master’s degree.
