A school on a human scale at the center of a research environment of excellence
UPSSITECH’s mission is to train engineers in 3 fields of specialization: Civil Engineering and Geosciences (GCGEO), Robotic and Interactive Systems (SRI), Telecommunications Systems and Computer Networks (STRI). With this objective in mind, it deploys a strong partnership policy with the academic and socio-economic world, in France and internationally, while continuing to increase its intake capacity and its training offer.
A very large majority of academic contributors are research professors belonging to internationally renowned research laboratories. They guarantee the link between training and research. The scientific orientation of the specialties, even if it is in strong synergy with industrial needs, is also guided by the themes and know-how developed in the laboratories. An essential point of the training is to reinforce the synergy and complementarity of professional and research objectives to meet the needs of innovation.
Within the School, this awareness of research and innovation is achieved on several levels:
- Following introductory courses in research which will allow engineering students to learn about research within the host teams of the supporting laboratories.
- The possibility for students to do one of their internships in a research laboratory or in a company’s R&D department. This orientation is strongly encouraged when students declare their desire to continue their studies in a doctoral program.
- Students are made aware of innovation in the last year of their training during specific courses.
The school offers a human-sized setting based on the strong involvement of administrative staff, teaching teams and partners from the professional sectors targeted by the courses, and offers special support to students throughout their studies.
To guarantee its operation, the satisfaction of all its users, internal and external, and the achievement of its objectives, the school deploys a quality policy based on a plan of action and continuous improvement.
