  • Get up to 30 ECTS credits;
  • Take part in the daily activities of a research unit;
  • Spend time at one of France’s top engineering universities’ laboratories;
  • Get personal supervision from a professor of UTT;
  • Be involved in research activity that is linked to your studies;
  • Begin any time of the year (Beware that requests for short stays in July and August only, are more difficult to satisty because of the Summer holidays).

UTT-Troyes, a research-intensive model constantly seeking "excellence"

A model of scientific activity specific to Universities of Technology that articulates fundamental research, disciplinary research and technological research in order to respond to major societal challenges. Research activities are conducted by permanent faculty members, associate researchers, project researchers, PASTs, PhD students and technical and administrative employees who work in the fields of engineering sciences, information and communication sciences and technologies, as well as humanities and social sciences, with a volume of 1,480 rank A publications over the last five years.

Over 360 staff, including 123 lecturer-cum-research scientists, 183 PhD students, 22 technical support staff and "admin" agents work for UTT research.

The best example of excellent scientific cooperation is the work of the team of Nanotechnology and Optical Instrumentation (L2n), ranked A + unit.

With 25 partnerships around the world, including 16 outside Europe, the L2n declines all forms of international cooperation: thesis cotutelle programs, stays of invited scientists (incoming and outgoing), participation in multi-country projects. The recent inauguration of a new state-of-the-art equipment, the "Nanomat" platform (nanocractisation and nanofabrication of materials for mechanics, optics, biology and agro-resources, member of the Renatech network) contributes to accentuate this trend. www.nanomat.eu/fr
