Mechanical Engineering (IM)

Mecha­ni­cal Engi­nee­ring (UTC-IM) has been crea­ted through a mer­ger of two exis­ting UTC depart­ments – GM (Mecha­ni­cal Engi­nee­ring) and GSM (Mecha­ni­cal Sys­tems Engi­nee­ring), for the pur­pose of trai­ning gene­ral mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring science gra­duates to meet the needs of those indus­trial sec­tors who need such skills.

UTC-IM key figures

  • 72 lec­tu­rer research scientists
  • 28 tech­ni­cal and admin. sup­port staff
  • 1 100 (approx.) students
  • 300 to 320 gra­duate engi­neers per year
  • 7500 alum­ni graduates


Trai­ning will there are cover a wide range of sec­to­rial acti­vi­ties run­ning from auto­mo­bile indus­tries, to rail­roads, to naval archi­tec­ture & construc­tion, aeros­pace and aero­nau­tics, bio­me­cha­ni­cal appli­ca­tions, ener­gy engi­nee­ring, mate­rial trans­for­ma­tion, robo­tics, pro­fes­sio­nal soft­ware edi­ting, desi­gn and consul­tan­cy offices … UTC-IM gra­duates will adapt well to the above indus­trial fields, will be able to inter­vene through the pro­duct life-cycle and the various pro­ject phases, in R&DE, in pre-pro­duct desi­gn and pro­to­ty­ping, in deve­lop­ment, indus­tria­li­za­tion, mass pro­duc­tion, sales, recycling …

The depart­ment will offer 3 year trai­ning to stu­dents with Bac.+2, pro­vi­ding solid groun­ding and skills in both Mecha­ni­cal and Indus­trial engi­nee­ring sciences. After trai­ning, gra­duates with the Mecha­ni­cal Engi­nee­ring diplo­ma will be espe­cial­ly fit to tackle and solve concrete tech­no­lo­gy- inten­sive pro­blems, often com­plex and accep­ting a high degree of res­pon­si­bi­li­ty in their mis­sionsThe lat­ter consist of desi­gning, making, imple­men­ting and main­tai­ning pro­ducts, pro­cesses and sys­tems to meet the needs of evol­ving indus­trial setups. UTC-MES gra­duates will bring with them a wide-rea­ching culture and an open vis­ta to the rea­li­ties of the indus­trial world.

They will, for ins­tance, be in a position: 

  • to desi­gn and size robust and safe mecha­ni­cal systems; 
  • to pro­pose mate­rials best sui­ted to expec­ted constraints and pro­per­ty specifications;
  • to inte­grate vibro-acous­tic ana­lyses to mecha­ni­cal designs;
  • to imple­ment qua­li­ty assu­rance mea­su­re­ments and certification;
  • to use digi­tal engi­nee­ring tools and soft­ware (CAD, PLM …)
  • to super­vise and control pro­duc­tion sys­tem and direct manu­fac­tu­ring processes;
  • to iden­ti­fy, choose and imple­ment sui­table mecha­tro­nic and/or inno­va­tive solutions

Training offer

The cur­ri­cu­lum for stu­dents taking UTC-IM courses is orga­ni­zed with 4 semes­ters' course work and 2 semes­ters' indus­trial pla­ce­ments. A core pro­gramme of cove­ring the scien­ti­fic and tech­no­lo­gi­cal fun­da­men­tals serves as the know­ledge and skills basis.

The courses pro­pose nume­rous expe­riment-inten­sive facets that help the stu­dents acquire and deve­lop a sense of concrete rea­li­ties. The course peda­go­gy is pro­ject and indus­trial­ly orien­ted and this helps streng­then their capa­ci­ty for team-work, nota­bly as their cur­ri­cu­lum sche­dules come to a close.

Indeed the inno­va­tive peda­go­gi­cal model imple­men­ted by UTC relies on an 'a la carte' offer; student-engi­neers at UTC can com­bine trai­ning and class sche­dules with per­so­nal and pro­fes­sio­nal pro­jects and this great­ly enhances their self-reliance. An excellent mas­te­ry of English is a prerequisite.

Tea­ching covers three main domains cor­res­pon­ding to the skills avai­lable at the Depart­ment of Mecha­ni­cal Engineering. 

  • science and engi­nee­ring of com­pu­ta­tio­nal mecha­nics, mate­rial sciences and acous­tics: model­ling of phy­si­cal phenomena;
  • science and engi­nee­ring of mecha­ni­cal and mecha­tro­nics assem­blies: mecha­tro­nic and elec­tro­nic power sys­tem design; 
  • science and engi­nee­ring of indus­trial sys­tems: desi­gn – indus­tria­li­za­tion, relia­bi­li­ty and design.

At the end of the core pro­gramme, the student-engi­neers choose an elec­tive spe­cial­ty. These spe­cial­ties have "pro­fes­sio­nal" over­tones and denote the in-depth add-on trai­ning in terms of employa­bi­li­ty. UTC-IM pro­poses 9 elec­tive spe­cial­ty streams, as follows:


The various course com­po­nents are based lar­ge­ly on the skills and avai­la­bi­li­ty of the UTC Rober­val Lab. (Mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring, Acous­tics, Vibra­tions and Mate­rials): UTC's Rober­val labo­ra­to­ry is spe­cia­li­sed in deve­lop­ment of expe­ri­men­tal and digi­tal approaches to the ana­ly­sis, model­ling and desi­gn of inno­va­tive mate­rials, struc­tures and inte­gra­ted mecha­ni­cal sys­tems, in elec­tric actua­tors and motri­ci­ty issues for on-board power sys­tems, power elec­tro­nics and control.

Partnerships and valorisation

The Mecha­ni­cal Engi­nee­ring Depart­ment has esta­bli­shed rich rela­tion­ships and part­ner­ships in many cut­ting edge sectors:

  • Auto­mo­bile, rail­road, aeros­pace: Renault, PSA Peu­geot-Citroën, Arce­lor Mit­tal, Valeo, Saint-Gobain, Iner­gy, ALSTOM, EADS, Air­bus, SAFRAN, CNES, ENERA, …
  • Ener­gy: EDF, CEA, ADEME, AREVA, ANDRA …
  • Wea­pons: DGA, MBDA, … 
  • Soft­ware edi­ting: ESI Group, Das­sault Systems …
  • Tech­ni­cal Centres and Research esta­blish­ments: CETIM, CETMEF, INERIS …

Research Pro­jects (appro­ved and fun­ded by ANR, Indus­tri­lab, FUI …) contri­bute to deve­lop­ment of these rela­tion­ships and to valo­rise the research work, nota­bly in the form of PhD theses conduc­ted with indus­trial partnerships.

Going abroad

Close on 2 out of 3 stu­dents who take Mecha­ni­cal Engi­nee­ring gain an inter­na­tio­nal expe­riences by doing a semes­ter of their cur­ri­cu­lum abroad at a part­ner uni­ver­si­ty or even a full year (6 months course work fol­lo­wed by 6 months pla­ce­ment). Nume­rous double diplo­mas are offe­red.
