Specialty – Built-up urban area systems and networks (GU-SREC)

Course objectives

GSU-SREC graduates must be capable of managing building programmes integrating multi-techniques and multi-service aspects. The course covers project management, ambience, regulations and standards, sustainable development, material sciences (notably resistance) and engineering, electric power feeds and mechanical engineering.

Programme

The pedagogical focus of GSU-SREC is on:

  • building construction systems: including admin and financial parameters,
  • building equipment: electric power feeds, ventilation, thermodynamic and hydraulic equipment and integrated energy control,
  • automation, regulation and 'smart' buildings: 'communication' between building technical units, 
  • technical property management: methods and tool used for maintenance, hygiene and safety questions,
  • renewable energies: thermal and photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, biomass, micro-hydraulic power,
  • fuzzy logic: concepts and applications: aids to decision using imperfect and occasionally contradictory data.

Research

The research programme combines contributions of technological innovation, knowledge of built-up areas and their environment with a view to attaining sustainable development. A special focus is on decentralized renewable electricity sources and electric generation-consumption optimization. An experimental rig allows GSU research scientists to assess and certify their conclusions.

Equipment

Students in GSU-SREC have access to:

  • specific training software packages (AutoCAD, AutoDESK, Revit, Matlab, Menta GTB ...) 
  • experimental demo rigs for: photovoltaic panels, wind turbines, fuels cells, electric micro-nets communicating with the national grid -smart grid technologies), building and network emulators.

Placements and Industrial Relations

Entrepreneurial placements and workshop experience represent the cornerstone of GSU-SREC training and (several longstanding) UTC partners companies, offer in-house training opportunities.

International

The numerous international cooperation agreements with universities outside France demonstrate the vitality and benefits of student exchanges. Over 50% of the GSU-SREC students spend at least 6 months abroad. In Western and Central Europe (Spain, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, Hungary, Estonia) and in North America (USA, Canada) and in Latin America -Brazil, Chile, Argentina).

Further Education

UTC also proposes:

  • a Master's degree in "ICTs for autonomous co-operating systems/ mechatronic systems and advanced mechanical engineering"

  • a PhD in Urban System Engineering

› 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).
