Specialty – Building Sciences (BAT)

The ambi­tion assi­gned to the UTC-BAT spe­cial­ty pro­gramme is to respond to the chal­lenges of set­ting up and imple­men­ting construc­tion ope­ra­tions and tech­ni­cal mana­ge­ment of real estate assets, inte­gra­ting the notions of ove­rall costs, envi­ron­ment, ener­gy per­for­mance and sus­tai­nable deve­lop­ment. This requires both tech­ni­cal and metho­do­lo­gi­cal know­ledge concer­ning the mana­ge­ment of real estate ope­ra­tions, net­works, tech­ni­cal sys­tems and buil­ding mana­ge­ment. A GU-BAT engi­neer must be capable of mana­ging a construc­tion and/or reno­va­tion pro­ject and must be able to inter­vene by inte­gra­ting its mul­ti-tech­ni­cal and mul­ti-ser­vice dimensions.

Teaching contents

Stu­dents in the BAT spe­cial­ty pro­gramme are expec­ted to acquire a basic amount of know­ledge in the fol­lo­wing areas: pro­ject mana­ge­ment, envi­ron­ment, regu­la­to­ry and sus­tai­nable deve­lop­ment, mate­rials, elec­tri­cal, ther­mal, mecha­ni­cal, strength of mate­rials. In the BAT pro­gramme, stu­dents will cover the fol­lo­wing curriculum:

  • Construc­tion sys­tems for buil­dings: construc­tion, desi­gn and site mana­ge­ment tech­niques for concrete-wood-metal frame buil­dings in accor­dance with regu­la­to­ry or pro­fes­sio­nal construc­tion provisions;
  • Tech­ni­cal equip­ment for buil­dings: elec­tri­cal, aerau­lic, ther­mo­dy­na­mic, hydrau­lic sys­tems and ener­gy integration;
  • Auto­ma­tion, regu­la­tion and intel­li­gent buil­dings: com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­work bet­ween tech­ni­cal buil­ding equipment;
  • Buil­ding and urban infra­struc­ture mana­ge­ment: model­ling and opti­mi­za­tion of ser­vices requi­red for the mana­ge­ment of phy­si­cal assets (buil­dings and infra­struc­tures) in order to main­tain or increase their value.

The pedagogical team

In order to achieve the spe­ci­fic trai­ning objec­tives of the BAT spe­cial­ty pro­gramme, the tea­ching is pro­vi­ded out by a tea­ching team of lec­tu­rers and scien­tists, as well as active pro­fes­sio­nals in com­pa­nies invi­ted as guest lec­tu­rers. Trai­ning, research and pro­fes­sio­nal expe­rience are diver­si­fied, com­ple­men­ta­ry and cover the pro­file des­cri­bed above.


Stu­dents have access to the fol­lo­wing equipment:

  • Soft­ware spe­ci­fic to the course (Auto­CAD, Revit, Navis­works, Robot, Mat­lab, Men­ta GTB, Pleiades Com­fie, etc.)
  • Demons­tra­tive expe­ri­men­tal devices: a BIM room, rene­wable ener­gy rigs (photovoltaic/wind), an elec­tri­cal micro­grid in com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the smart grid, buil­ding emu­la­tor, elec­tri­cal grid emu­la­tor, buil­ding digi­ti­sa­tion: 3D laser scan­ner (Faro, Lei­ca), Tech­viz vir­tual rea­li­ty equip­ment, rapid pro­to­ty­ping room (3D prin­ting, laser cut­ting), THERMO CUBE ther­mal cell, etc.

Placements/internships and industrial relations

Work pla­ce­ments and pro­ject work­shops form the cor­ners­tone of the trai­ning pro­gramme, desi­gned as it is to be consistent with the evo­lu­tion of the trades and pro­fes­sions invol­ved. Seve­ral pri­vate, public or mixed com­pa­nies, some of which are long-stan­ding part­ners, offer trai­ning oppor­tu­ni­ties in companies.

The objec­tive for the engi­nee­ring stu­dents on pla­ce­ment is to acquire the fol­lo­wing pro­fes­sio­nal skills

  • Advi­sing and recom­men­ding tech­ni­cal solu­tions adap­ted to needs;
  • Plan­ning, mana­ging and appro­ving construc­tion, main­te­nance, adap­ta­tion and safe­ty ope­ra­tions (pro­ject management);
  • Car­rying out or super­vi­sing the pre­li­mi­na­ry tech­ni­cal studies;
  • Car­rying out ope­ra­tions or pro­ject mana­ge­ment assignments;
  • Asses­sing exis­ting assets: inven­to­ry, diag­no­sis, monitoring.


The Urban Engi­nee­ring depart­ment (UTC-GU) is invol­ved in four double degrees with the Ecole de Tech­no­lo­gie Supé­rieure de Mont­réal, Poly­tech­nique Mont­réal in Cana­da and the Braun­sch­weig Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­no­lo­gy (TUBr) in Ger­ma­ny. Student-engi­neers are encou­ra­ged to go on exchange for a semes­ter of stu­dy at a uni­ver­si­ty in Europe (Bel­gium, Ger­ma­ny, Ita­ly, Lithua­nia, Poland, Por­tu­gal, Spain, Swe­den, etc.), in Ame­ri­ca (Bra­zil, Cana­da, Chile, Mexi­co, Uni­ted States, Rhode Island, etc.) or in Asia (Chi­na, South Korea, Sin­ga­pore, Tai­wan, etc.)They also have the pos­si­bi­li­ty to do one of their inter­n­ship per­iods abroad.

Professional openings

A GU-BAT gra­duate engi­neer may be res­pon­sible, most often on behalf of a pro­ject prime contrac­tor, for buil­ding construc­tion or reno­va­tion pro­jects, ope­ra­tion, main­te­nance and upkeep, for­ward thin­king on construc­tion and deve­lop­ment, and coor­di­na­tion of the cor­res­pon­ding sites. They are invol­ved in all phases of a pro­ject, from plan­ning to ope­ra­tion. They may also manage tech­ni­cal ser­vices, real estate and logis­tics departments.

Examples of jobs: gene­ral buil­ding engi­neer, pro­ject stu­dy mana­ger, gene­ral buil­ding and public works engi­neer, real estate ope­ra­tions mana­ger, plan­ning engi­neer, ope­ra­tions and main­te­nance engi­neer, etc.
