University qualification

The DUT is a two-year nationally recognized qualification.

Students complete a wide range of general courses (Math, English and Communication skills) and scientific or technical courses.

Students spend 70% of the 1800 contact hours provided over the two-year period on vocational courses and 30% on general courses.

Lectures, academic tutorials and practical work represent around 20%, 40% and 40% of the total time, respectively. In addition, a three- to five-month internship is required at the end of the two-year period. As can be seen, this curriculum strongly emphasizes industrially relevant practical and hands-on work.

The LP  (Licence Professionnelle)  is  the third year of a nationally recognized degree specializing in one area.

The emphasis is also on practical work.

As well as their studies, the students are required to conduct an industrial project and to perform a four-month internship in an industrial setting.
