Industrial Process Engineering (GP)
Process Engineering is a cross-roads of various specialty skills, knowledge and know-how that sees natural or synthetic raw materials transformed into finished products in a series of operational stages. A PE Engineer faces some of today’s major challenges: energy economics and savings, optimal lean use of raw materials, limited impacts on the environment.
UTC-GP key figures
- 28 lecturer research scientists
- 100 graduates / yr.
- 25 Master's degree / yr.
- Over 10 PhDs / yr.
- Average time to recruitment: 2 months
- 40% of the GPI graduates are recruited after their end-of-studies project
- 90% of the GPI graduates are recruited within 6 months after graduation
The UTC-GPI Department trains generalist engineers, who can be recruited in a number off sectors: chemistry, parachemistry, oil and petroleum products, agro-food industries … the basic courses cover thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, transfer phenomena, reactor vessel and content calculations (hence needing good mastery of computer sciences and computational methodologies).
The PE is capable of:
- designing transformation processes for matter and energy, safe, clean and economical,
- following and scaling up development to industrial operations,
- ensuring optimal operations in line with a predefined sustainable development policy.
The UTC-GPI Dept offers 4 specialties (for students recruited from BAC+2 (DEUTEC, DUT or CPGE) or BAC+3 (First degree):
- … to which must be added the transverse specialty – Management of Innovative Projects (UTC-MPI)
The excellence of GP research is a clear feature:
- in the TIMR laboratory "Integrated transformations of renewable matter", at the convergence of GPI and green chemistry aims to valorize agro-resources.
- involvment in the Government incentive Investments for the Future (ITE PIVERT) .
- participation in activities for the world-class Competitivity Pole IAR (industries and agro-resources)
50% of the GPI students can choose among some 40 host establishments round the world in Canada, the USA, UK, Finland, Sweden, Brazil, Argentina, Chile…).
A double diploma can be awarded after studies at the Universities of Braunschweig (Germany), Cranfield (UK), Turin (Italy), Zaragoza (Spain), Itajuba (Brazil).
