Why choose the IUT?

The courses have been designed in collaboration with industry and have an applied focus: work placements and live projects being part of course requirements.

The working world is central to the courses at the IUT that are both academic and practical with many modules devoted to field or lab work and project management.

Teaching is done by academics (researchers and non-researchers), and professionals from industrial or business companies, either in lectures or practicals, which facilitates teacher / student contact.

The IUT applies the ‘Bologna Process’ leading to harmonisation and transparency of studies in the European Union; thus the structure of courses has become semestrial and results are validated in accordance with the ECTS system.

Contents are decided and validated by a national Commission composed of academics and professionals, making the DUT a national award
