Health-care engineering (IDS)

The aim of UTC’s Health Engi­nee­ring spe­cial­ty Master’s degree (IDS) is to train mana­gers capable of unders­tan­ding the pro­blems lin­ked to the stra­te­gic deploy­ment and ope­ra­tion of tech­no­lo­gi­cal ser­vices and sys­tems within com­pa­nies and orga­ni­za­tions. Trai­ning is more par­ti­cu­lar­ly orien­ted towards the mana­ge­ment of qua­li­ty and bio­me­di­cal tech­no­lo­gies in so-cal­led ‘health ter­ri­to­ries’, as well as regu­la­to­ry affairs revol­ving round the medi­cal device.

The IDS Master's degree has been accre­di­ted by the Medi­cen ‘health com­pe­ti­ti­ve­ness clus­ter’ since 2016 and by the Nutri­tion Health Lon­ge­vi­ty clus­ter of Hauts-de-France since 2021.

Since Sep­tem­ber 2021, the second year of the course has been open to sand­wich courses.


IDS offers 2 specialties:

Job opportunities

Depen­ding on the courses cho­sen, the career oppor­tu­ni­ties are aimed at the func­tions – for the TBTS course of hos­pi­tal bio­me­di­cal engi­neer – appli­ca­tion engi­neer, pro­duct engi­neer, pro­ject mana­ger in health regu­la­tion orga­ni­sa­tions; and for the DMAR course – mana­ger of regu­la­to­ry affairs, qua­li­ty and stan­dar­di­za­tion in desi­gners, manu­fac­tu­rers or ope­ra­tors of medi­cal devices.

The Master's degree is inten­ded for pro­fes­sio­nals; howe­ver, it is sup­por­ted by the tea­cher-resear­chers of two research labo­ra­to­ries: UMR CNRS 7338 Bio­me­cha­nics and Bioen­gi­nee­ring (BMBI), the EA 2223 Know­ledge, Orga­ni­za­tion and Tech­ni­cal Sys­tems (UTC-Cos­tech) and a research-action unit Qua­li­ty in Pro­duct and Pro­cess Desi­gn, Inno­va­tion (QCP2I).

Pur­suit to a PhD the­sis is not inten­ded to be deve­lo­ped in a signi­fi­cant way in this men­tion, never­the­less the choice of cer­tain UE with a research pur­pose, the par­ti­ci­pa­tion in pro­jects of the research labo­ra­to­ries of UTC during the inter­n­ship of M1 or that of M2, the draf­ting and publi­ca­tion of pro­fes­sio­nal articles sup­port the inte­gra­tion in the research units for the gra­duates who would like to pur­sue a doctorate.

The TBTS spe­cial­ty pro­gramme is accre­di­ted by the Inno­va­tion in health ‘Medi­cen’ com­pe­ti­ti­ve­ness clus­ter in the Paris Region.

The DMAR pro­gramme has been cho­sen by the Syn­di­cat natio­nal de l'industrie des tech­no­lo­gies médi­cales (SNITEM) to pro­vide trai­ning for bio­me­di­cal SMEs in regu­la­to­ry affairs for medi­cal devices. The par­ti­ci­pa­tion of exter­nal contri­bu­tors from the pro­fes­sio­nal world is quite signi­fi­cant in the tea­ching of the degree in order to adapt its contents and to achieve good employa­bi­li­ty for future UTC-DMAR graduates.


The courses are orga­ni­zed over 4 semes­ters, 3 semes­ters of UE (S1 to S3) and 1 semes­ter (S4) dedi­ca­ted exclu­si­ve­ly to a long-term placement/ inter­n­ship (22 to 24 weeks). A short inter­n­ship (1 month) at the end of S1 or S2 is stron­gly recom­men­ded.

Semes­ters S1 and S2 include a com­mon core of UE (25 to 50%) fol­lo­wed by all stu­dents in the field. They concern the com­mon tools and basic know­ledge for their trai­ning (com­pu­ter sciences and net­works, infor­ma­tion sys­tems, mea­su­re­ments and data ana­ly­sis, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and inter­per­so­nal skills) and path­way courses allo­wing them to spe­cia­lize in an order­ly man­ner and pace. These path­way courses are 50% sha­red with the engi­nee­ring cycle of the UTC.

Semes­ter S3 is orga­ni­zed with 25% of UE com­mon to the 4 courses which concern pro­ject engi­nee­ring, pro­fes­sio­nal com­mu­ni­ca­tion and pro­fes­sio­nal pre­pa­ra­tion (CV, inter­views, team mana­ge­ment). The other courses are spe­ci­fic to each spe­cial­ty.

A large part of the course is based on pro­ject-based tea­ching. In M2, stu­dents car­ry out at least one col­lec­tive pro­ject in order to deve­lop their skills in mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­na­ry and mul­ti­cul­tu­ral team­work, pro­ject mana­ge­ment and high-level pro­fes­sio­nal communication.

The pro­gress of these pro­jects is moni­to­red with scien­ti­fic and metho­do­lo­gi­cal sup­port from the tea­cher-resear­chers and some­times from exter­nal part­ners who have pro­po­sed sub­jects. An impor­tant part is given to the stu­dents' real and prac­ti­cal expe­rience in seve­ral forms: appro­pria­tion work­shops, case stu­dies, visits to ser­vices, demons­tra­tions of equip­ment, confe­rences, prac­ti­cal work, etc.
