// Metrology applied to environmental and biological measurements

// Introduction and objectives of the course

The development of new standards or the characterization of reference materials is necessary. Metrology is a key parameter in assessing the biological, chemical, eco toxicological and environmental risks. Companies must adapt quickly to the current evolutions and metrological constraints whether it is the current level of measurement traceability or the connection of their instruments in order to control the manufacturing processes and thus ensure the quality of products on an international level.

One of the major objectives in the industries is to assess and quantify their performance in order to meet their requirements either on measuring chains or to issue examination certificates within the context of legal metrology.

The aim of the vocational bachelor’s degree is to meet the current and future needs of people in the trade. It addresses metrology and its versatility within the company so as to develop the students’ critical sense of measurements, their capacity to control processes and to estimate uncertainties.

// Admission requirements

The vocational bachelor’s degree ‘environmental protection’ is primarily intended for undergraduates with:

  • BTS: biological analysis, biochemistry, biotechnology, chemistry, physical techniques for industries and laboratories, technical engineer assistants
  • DUT: physics, biological engineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, process engineering, hygiene, safety and environment
  • Students having completed a 2nd year at university: science and technology bachelor’s degree, major chemistry, physics and physical sciences, life sciences

Admission is granted after assessing the student’s application form, (including a cover letter and their school records) and after an individual interview.

// Course structure and content

This degree trains professionals in metrology capable on the one hand to analyze the metrological requirements within a regulatory framework, and on the other hand to characterize, validate and estimate an uncertainty whether it is in environmental metrology-related areas or biological measurements.
