// Introduction and objectives of the course

The chemistry department at IUT A of Lille offers a vocational course on a fulltime basis as well as under continuing education or apprenticeship schemes. This course has both theoretical and practical objectives: it aims at training highly skilled technicians, direct aides to engineers or researchers, in all the fields of chemistry and chemistry-related industries: research, development, production, analysis and control.

The DUT graduate in chemistry must be able to implement the engineer’s ideas and to act as the interface between the engineer and the workers. Adaptability to different fields of activity, special concern with environmental issues and quality processes are key aspects of the course.
