// Physics and applied sciences

// Introduction and objectives of the course

The department of applied sciences trains industrial executives who are able to adapt to modern techniques of measurement and control in many sectors of research and industry. The DUT graduate in physics and applied sciences is a versatile engineer. At the end of the 4-semester course, he/she has acquired not only a good theoretical background but also a sound technological know-how in a wide range of physicochemical methods, thanks to a sound practical training.

The first year focuses on the fundamental scientific knowledge and practical skills required for the understanding of basic physical and chemical phenomena. During the second year the student has to choose between two options: Physical-chemical methods and control or Instrumental techniques.

// Course structure and content

The course is available on a full-time initial training over 4 semesters (under certain conditions students can be admitted straight into the second year); a multimedia scheme is likely to be developed within 2 years.

// Career and study prospects

There are excellent career opportunities in such diverse industrial sectors as: instrumentation and sensors, metrology, quality control, electrical and electronic industries, mechanical construction, chemical and chemistry-related firms, data processing, signal processing…

The most successful graduates can apply for further studies to most of the engineering schools (écoles d’ingénieurs) in France. Others apply for further university courses in related disciplines. They are usually quite successful.
