Specialty- Materials and Technological Innovation (MIT)

The MIT specialty trains the students in design and use of materials with their specific properties such as durability, recyclability of metals, polymers and composites.

Programme

The basic Mechanical Engineering courses in resistance of materials, CAD, QA, project management has add-modules on methodology of choice of materials and properties, using up-to-date modelling.

Academic staff

The lecturer staff are mostly research personnel with the " Materials and Surfaces team" in the UTC-Roberval Mechanical Engineering laboratory. These lecturers, associated with the CNRS, are involved with numerous research projects with industrial partners.

Equipment

MIT students can avail of:

  • mechanical test machines (traction, fatigue rigs, Charpy shock pendulums ...)
  • a mold laboratory (injection, RTM...)
  • tribology rigs
  • an injection press
  • equipment to observe materials (optical and electron beam scanning microscopes) and thermal treatment (controlled furnaces)
  • several computer stations with digital modelling software packages

International

Students who take the MIT elective specialty can be accepted for a semester study in one of UTC's partner universities. 17% of the MIT students spend a semester or more for their end-of studies project, in Denmark, Norway, Check Republic and various university laboratories (Cranfield-UK, Chalmers-Sweden, Itajuba-Brazil ...). The details of the numerous possible host universities is set out in the French site.

Professional openings

Partnership agreement ensure an efficient correspondence of courses given in MIT and the needs expressed by the industrialists such as: SNECMA, AUBERT & DUVAL, AIRCELLE, AEROLIA, SIEMENS, VALLOUREC, AIRBUS, GDF SUEZ, ATOFINA, CAMFILL, FAURECIA, ANF BOMBARIDER, SBM Offshore, CEA, DCNS, VALEO, MICHELIN, DUNLOP, EDF, THOMSON, GE PLASTICS, EADS, ONERA, CETIM, MONTUPET, ARCELOR, SAINT GOBAIN INERGY AS, RENAULT, ALSTOM, AIR LIQUIDE, DASSAULT, ALCATEL, PSA, FAURECIA, HISPANO-SUIZA, SCHLUMBERGER, DECATHLON, ...

Career prospects

A high proportion of professional offers and recruitments of MIT graduates are to positions in Research and R&D, mostly in large scale industrial corporations with a focus on design ad choice of materials that are closely interconnected in mechanical engineering work. Example of employment fields are aeronautics, space, mechanical fabrication, energy and environment, plasturgy and composites. A new development is in off-shore and other alternate energy production and transmission.

Further Education

UTC proposes MIT students to continue with two specialties in Mechanical and Engineering Sciences : the Complex Mechanical Structures and Systems (SMC) specialty and the Mechatronic Systems (SMT) specialty, which the MARS study can attend in parallel in their final year ; they can also register for a PhD in 'Mechanical Enginering', with the UTC Roberval Laboratory.

› The above courses and other, shorter modules whether leading to a diploma award or not, can be obtained in the UTC Continuous Education scheme or via the Professional experience validation scheme (VAE).
