University of Technology Troyes - UTT

Introduction

Our mission

UTT's core missions are to conduct research, deliver education & training and facilitate technology transfer. UTT is a French institution of higher education established in 1994. It is today one of the largest engineering schools in France. Over 2,500 students are registered at the University, enrolled on undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral study programs. In the renowned yearly ranking of the French magazine “L’Etudiant”, UTT takes in 2011 an enviable 6th position among 65 French engineering schools.

Customized study programs

The standard five-year engineering degree, which is accredited by France's independent engineering degree accreditation body, CTI, can be tailored to each student's individual career objectives as from the first year. UTT offers five engineering degrees, a master's program with the choice of nine specializations, a PhD research program in five specialist areas, as well as work-integrated learning (WIL) modules which combine academic study with paid workplace learning (leading to either a vocational degree, an engineering degree or a master's).

Researching excellence

Research activities at UTT are conducted by eight teams within the Charles Delaunay Institute (ICD). The Institute pursues an interfaculty approach to the central theme underpinning all research efforts: risk management science and technology (RMST), one of the major challenges facing modern society.

Strong ties with industry

UTT develops and maintains proactive relations with industry through joint research programs with businesses and long internships for its students. UTT is a member of the Carnot Institute Network (along with the Compiègne University of Technology) and actively encourages the creation of new businesses.

Innovative management approach

The University's commitment to project-based management and analytical accounting, coupled with innovative human resources practices, allowed UTT to figure among France's first "independent" institutions as of January 1, 2009, following the government's University reform bill aimed at granting greater autonomy to universities to manage their budget and staff. The University has also established a partnership-based Foundation to support its efforts and long-term development.

Thriving partnerships

UTT is part of the French network of universities of technology (UT) alongside Compiègne (UTC) and Belfort-Montbéliard (UTBM). This unique engineering degree model, fostered by scientific research and close interaction with the business community in France and beyond, has also been emulated in China. In 2005, the three French universities of technology set up the Shanghai Sino-European University of Technology (UTSEUS), which currently counts 1,000 Chinese and French students.

Optics and Nanotechnology

Campus Full time September 2017 France Troyes

The "Optics and Nanotechnologies" specialization trains students for the activities of research and development in the field of nanotechnologies.

[+]

Objectives The "Optics and Nanotechnologies" specialization trains students for the activities of research and development in the field of nanotechnologies. This programme is based on the study of various techniques and methods, mainly optical, which make it possible to manufacture nanostructures and materials, to characterize their physical and chemical properties and to understand the associated phenomena. Research into miniaturization of mechanical, electronic, optical, chemical, and biological, devices has seen a huge rise in the last fifteen years, thanks to the development of new microscopes called local probe microscopes. The goal of these new probe techniques is to characterize and help to build miniaturized objects, and thus to develop future technologies, on the nanometer scale (nanotechnologies), or even the atom scale. The "Optics and Nanotechnologies" specialization offers training mainly in the field of optical local probe microscopy and a familiarisation with other microscopic techniques (Atomic Force Microscopy AFM, Scanning Tunnelling Microscopy STM). The principal research topics covered are geared towards nanosciences. They tackle the problems of nanodetection of molecular, crystalline or nanostructured objects, but also those of modeling electromagnetic fields on the same scale, with the aim of understanding and interpreting the observed experimental results. Generally speaking, this speciality is based on an "optical" approach i.e. to use a transverse discipline to explore a multi-disciplinary and developing field, which is nanotechnologies. Prerequisites For the first year, admission is offered to holders of a European degree in physics, chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, applied mathematics, and to the students who can provide evidence of a diploma equivalent to 180 ECTS credits in one of these disciplines. For the second year, admission is offered to the holders of a Bachelor’s degree in physics, physical sciences, chemistry, physical chemistry, biochemistry, EEA, or applied mathematics, and to the holders of a MST, or engineering students in the final year of their degree if their course contains a basic training in physics (materials, optics...), physico-chemistry or mathematics. Admission is also possible for the holders of equivalent foreign degrees (240 ECTS credits). Final admission is decided by a jury who evaluates the applications. Potential Careers Nanotechnology, or the control of matter on the elements scale which constitutes it, requires knowledge and a know-how which is increasingly valuable to engineers and researchers. The programme offered will enable the students to become familiar with the techniques, from an experimental point of view, as well as a theoretical and numerical one. The knowledge acquired will enable to consider new outlets in organizations or laboratories, which can be found in sectors as varied as biology, physics and chemistry of materials, optoelectronics and photonics.
