Activities

Polytech Grenoble brings together the UGA's engineering courses under one department. Polytech Grenoble is the school of engineering at the Université Grenoble Alpes, accredited by the CTI (French Institution for Engineering Accreditation).

It offers 7 specialist diplomas, one of which is an apprenticeship. It provides students with a sound technological and scientific basis as well as skills in humanities and economics.

The workplace is at the heart of our courses with 300 lecturers from the world of industry and a 34-week internship as part of the engineering cycle.

Broadening cultural and international horizons is also an important part of these courses. The majority of modules are taught by research professors which enables close interaction between high-level research and the courses.

Programs

The engineering cycle gives students the opportunity to gain skills in six specialist fields from risk prevention, electronics and digital systems to biomedical engineering, geotechnics and civil engineering, materials and computer science.

A preparatory post-baccalaureate (A level-equivalent) cycle (Polytech Engineering School Path: PeiP) for students who have passed their scientific baccalaureate (bac S) or science and technology of industry and sustainable development baccalaureate (bac STI2D) is accessible for those who have passed the national Geipi Polytech competitive examination. The modules offered over the two-year PeiP course provide solid foundations in the basic scientific subjects as well as the basics of humanities and social sciences needed to continue with the engineering cycle.

A preparatory cycle specifically for students who have followed a PACES year enables them to integrate into any of the specialist fields of the engineering cycle in just one year.

Research

The school's 80 research professors work in 25 internationally-known laboratories in the Université Grenoble Alpes. Their modules are thus fleshed out with examples of cutting-edge technical and scientific innovations and some high-standard equipment is available for students to use. It is possible to pursue a Doctoral thesis after gaining an Engineering diploma.

Partnerships

Close links between the professional world and the school mean that professionals teach some of the modules (about 30% of the course), various events are organised in connection with companies and 25 companies are brought together in a partners' club.
