Instrumentation & Measurement Department

The Instrumentation & Measurement department of the IUT of Le Mans (University Institute of Technology) provides technology-based courses aimed at training skilled junior engineers over a period of two years after the "baccalaureate" (A' level).

The multi-disciplinary training focuses on the measuring chain and scientific and engineering techniques, ensuring a balance of theoretical and practical knowledge. It opens up possibilities for employment in practically any industrial field and all sorts of businesses.

WHAT STUDENTS LEARN

Fundamental physics (electricity, mechanics, optics, thermodynamics, fluid dynamics), mathematics and statistics, engineering materials, physico-chemical analysis, programming, electronics, automation, sensors and measuring chain, data and signal processing, metrology, quality control, English, expression and communication.

Curriculum 1st year (semesters 1 and 2)

Curriculum 2nd year (semesters 3 and 4)

The programme also includes a 3-month work placement.

As part of their studies, the students are required to do an unpaid training period (from ten weeks to thirteen) within a company/university in order to put their knowledge into practice and gain experience.
