Program Description:
Program Description:

UTC is both a French national university and an engineering school, with autonomous training, pedagogy and an innovation-intensive, interdisciplinary technological research program. UTC produces graduates (engineers, Master’s degree, PhDs) capable of taking into account the interactions of technologies with Mankind and Society at large and of evolving in a world-scale competitive environment, with the aim of complying with sustainable development policies. The UTC lecturers, research scientists and engineers “lend meaning to innovation”, enabling the emergence of new axes underpinning this concept, introducing entrepreneurship principles in the heart of their concerns.

"Students in the French IEP spend the Fall semester enrolled as a full-time student at  University of Technology of Compiegne (UTC) in Compiegne, France. Following their time immersed as an exchange student, students conduct a six-months professional internship / research project at a major global engineering / business firm."
