Specialty - Industrial Design Engineering (IDI)

IDI students receive training in a very wide range of technical, economic, aesthetic and ergonomic factors, applicable to industrial design and creativity.

Programme

With the advice of IDI staff, the students have a choice of CCs in this specialty, along which notably:

  • courses common to all GM specialties: resistance of materials, vibration phenomena, electric motor systems, solid-state physics, mechanical engineering properties.
  • material technologies: metals, composites, polymers and material shaping
  • product design basics: ergonomics, value analysis, design methodology, project management, QA, CAM design offices
  • specific of design: formal rules, drawing, volume mock-ups, geometric models, CAD, semiology and product psychometrics, automobile design, project work
  • economic and cultural factors: marketing, technological resource management, technical culture, industrial property rights, arts and society ...

Academic staff

The teaching staff comprises research scientist lecturers, designers, graphic artists, and mock-up specialists, plus external lecturers from relevant design industrial sectors, all professionals in design and creative businesses, in communication and innovation. The research scientists also work in the CQP21 Laboratory (Design and Quality of Products and Processes and ODIC) et ODIC (Decision aid tools for innovation and design).

Equipment

IDI students have access to means (some provided by design agencies):

  • prototyping and mock-up rooms
  • design software packages (such as Solidworks)
  • finishing software packages (such as Keyshot)
  • Adobe software suites
  • graphic tables ...

Placements and industrial relations

It is noteworthy that UTC and the design section are members of associations, promotional institutions for design and industrial creativity, at regional, national and even international levels. UTC is a member of the ICSID (International Council of Societies of Industrial Design) and participates in its Educational Advisory Committee.

International

IDI has a series of privileged relationships with design schools round the world.
Details are set out in the French site and under the heading INTERNATIONAL.

Professional openings

A constant flow of job offers from industry, for design skills in railways, aeronautics, automobiles, consumer goods, health equipment, tools and in functions such as value analysis, industrial design, ergonomics and for institutions such ANVAR, CCI, CRITT, DRIRE.
