Exchange programs : a unique experience

Nowadays, engineers must adapt and work quickly in new and multicultural environments.
An international experience has become a key point for recruiters and in the professional world. This period of exchange is a good way for students to get familiar with an international environment, to learn a foreign language and especially to obtain additional and complementary competences.

If you are looking for a unique experience abroad for 1 or 2 semesters in a renowned university, the UTT is on top of your list!

It is also possible to combine a semester of study with a semester of internship during your exchange at UTT, the internship taking place during the 2nd semester.

It's also possible to do an internship within one of UTT's laboratories (combined or not with a semester of studies).

The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)

Since 1990, with the introduction of the ERASMUS program, the European Union has set up the ECTS scheme (European Credit Transfer System) to enable students to validate their periods of study abroad. The ECTS is a system of academic recognition of learning achievements and transfer of credits throughout the EU, providing a way of measuring and comparing academic results and transferring them from one institution to another.

The ECTS system is based on 3 main principles: information (on courses available and
students’ results), agreement (between the participating institutions and the students), and the use of Credit Points.

These three core elements are implemented by means of three key documents:
• the information package
• the application form/learning agreement
• the transcript of records

ECTS credits are a value allocated to course units to describe the student workload required. They reflect the quantity of work each course requires in relation to the total quantity of work required to complete a full year of academic study at the institution. Thus, 60 credits ECTS represent the workload of a year of study (30 credits = one semester). It is up to the individual participating institution to subdivide the credits for the different courses over the year. In UTT, each credit course is usually worth 2, 4 or 6 ECTS.
 

ECTS Grading scale

The ECTS grade is complementary to but does not replace the mark given by the institution concerned.  The assessment of a course corresponds to a letter (A, B, C, D, E and F):

A Excellent (10% of students)
B Very Good (25%)
C Good (30%)
D Satisfactory (25%)
E Pass (10%)
F/FX Fail

At the UTT, there is no “catch up” or second examination session in any given semester.
