Key features of the UTC-GP course

  • Key to mee­ting envi­ron­men­tal, indus­trial and socie­tal challenges
  • Gene­ra­list, mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­na­ry trai­ning, giving access to a wide range of pro­fes­sions and busi­ness sectors
  • 2 6‑month indus­trial inter­n­ship periods
  • Com­ple­men­ta­ry courses avai­lable in parallel: 
    • "Ato­mic Engi­nee­ring" with the Ins­ti­tut Natio­nal des Sciences et Tech­niques Nucléaires (INSTN)
    • "Ener­gy and Mar­kets", "Ener­gy and Pro­cesses", "Ener­gy and Moto­ri­za­tion", "Pro­cesses and Poly­mers" with IFP School
    • Mas­ters in "For­mu­la­ted Pro­duct Engi­nee­ring" and "Pro­cesses for the Valo­ri­sa­tion of Rene­wable Resources" at UTC.
  • A sand­wich spe­cia­list trai­ning programme


The objec­tives of the pro­cess engi­nee­ring trai­ning pro­gramme are:

  • To acquire fun­da­men­tal know­ledge and skills (ther­mo­dy­na­mics, kine­tics, trans­fer phenomena).
  • To dee­pen this know­ledge and skills in one of the fol­lo­wing 4 spe­cia­li­sa­tion areas: Ener­gy Effi­cien­cy and Rene­wable Ener­gies (3ER), Bio­pro­cesses and Rene­wable Resources (B2R), Eco-desi­gn and Pro­cess Safe­ty (EcoS), Mana­ge­ment of Inno­va­tive Pro­jects (MPI).
  • To apply and acquire new skills in a pro­fes­sio­nal envi­ron­ment (2 6‑month internships).

Training offer

The UTC-GPI Dept offers 4 spe­cial­ties (for stu­dents recrui­ted from BAC+2 (DEUTEC, DUT or CPGE) or BAC+3 (First degree):


Stu­dents will be in contact with tea­cher-resear­chers from the UTC Inte­gra­ted Trans­for­ma­tion for Rene­wable Mat­ter (UTC-TIMR) labo­ra­to­ry, and can be intro­du­ced to research through pro­jects. The joint research unit UTC Inte­gra­ted Trans­for­ma­tion for Rene­wable Mat­ter – ESCOM (TIMR UTC-ESCOM) aims to deve­lop, vali­date and imple­ment know­ledge and know-how for rene­wable mate­rial trans­for­ma­tion pro­cesses and reactions.

Internship placements, professional outlets & opportunities

Nume­rous natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal indus­trial part­ner­ships have been deve­lo­ped in the agro-indus­trial, ener­gy, che­mi­cal, bio­tech­no­lo­gy, cos­me­tics, phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and envi­ron­men­tal (water, air, soil, waste) sec­tors, inclu­ding: Engie, Suez, Veo­lia, EDF, Ora­no, Fra­ma­tome, Alstom, Bon­duelle, Nest­lé, Sofi­pro­téol, Tech­nip, Total, Sano­fi, Tereos and others.

Gra­duates are employed as pro­ject mana­gers, pro­duc­tion site mana­gers, R&D engi­neers, pro­duct and pro­cess qua­li­ty and safe­ty mana­gers, envi­ron­men­tal engi­neers, etc.

At the end of their trai­ning, stu­dents also have the option of pur­suing and regis­te­ring for a PhD doc­to­ral thesis.

Studying abroad

During their trai­ning, engi­nee­ring stu­dents must demons­trate their abi­li­ty to evolve in an inter­na­tio­nal context. To achieve this, they can spend one or more semes­ters stu­dying and/or doing an inter­n­ship abroad (some for­ty des­ti­na­tions world­wide: Cana­da, USA, UK, Fin­land, Swe­den, Bra­zil, Argen­ti­na, Chile, Tai­wan, Japan, South Korea, etc.).
A double engi­nee­ring degree can be obtai­ned from the Uni­ver­si­ties of Braun­sch­weig (Ger­ma­ny), Cran­field (UK), Ita­ju­ba (Bra­zil), Uni­ver­si­dad del Sur (Argen­ti­na), Poly­tech­nique Mont­réal (Que­bec) and École de Tech­no­lo­gie Supé­rieure de Mont­réal (Que­bec).
