The SHU-UTseuS Master’s degree in Mechatronics, coming shortly

UTseuS is the Fran­co-Chi­nese engi­neer­ing train­ing pro­gram, a strong part­ner­ship that has been forged over the ten past years. Cre­at­ed by the net­work of French Uni­ver­si­ties of Tech­nol­o­gy (UTs) and the Uni­ver­si­ty of Shang­hai (SHU), this part­ner­ship is equal­ly pio­neer­ing and unique in the fields of train­ing and research. Most recent is the cre­ation of a Mas­ter’s degree in “mecha­tron­ics”.

The Sino-Euro­pean Tech­nol­o­gy Uni­ver­si­ty (UTSeuS) of the Shang­hai Uni­ver­si­ty (SHU) trains more than 1,200 Chi­nese, French and Euro­pean stu­dents each year in an inter­na­tion­al and mul­ti­cul­tur­al set­ting. At the end of Octo­ber 2018, Dong­han Jin, Pres­i­dent of Shang­hai Uni­ver­si­ty in Chi­na, came to UTC-Com­pieg­ne to par­tic­i­pate in the launch­ing of a new Mas­ter’s degree pro­gram rec­og­nized in Chi­na and France. This was an oppor­tu­ni­ty to strength­en UTseuS coop­er­a­tion ini­ti­at­ed in 2005. 

Indeed, UTseuS allows, thanks to the many pos­si­bil­i­ties of mobil­i­ty, to train Chi­nese engi­neers to meet the needs of French com­pa­nies export­ing to Chi­na and to train French engi­neers to become com­pe­tent on the Chi­nese labour mar­ket, while acquir­ing new work­ing meth­ods and adding a strong inter­na­tion­al dimen­sion to their careers. “Last July, we signed an Agree­ment between Shang­hai Uni­ver­si­ty (SHU) and the three Uni­ver­si­ties of Tech­nol­o­gy (UTBM, UTC, UTT), enabling the cre­ation of a new Mas­ter’s degree at UTseuS. The first class of stu­dents for this Mas­ter’s degree should be wel­comed at the start of the Sep­tem­ber 2021 aca­d­e­m­ic year. We are expect­ing 100 stu­dents per class, 25 French stu­dents from the three UTs and 75 Chi­nese”, announces Marc Bon­diou, French direc­tor of the UTseuS.

The pro­posed new Mas­ter’s degree in “Mecha­tron­ics” also cor­re­sponds to the cre­ation, in 2019, of a research axis in data sci­ence for cyber-phys­i­cal s y s t e m s . Once the ped­a­gog­i­cal m o d e l and the asso­ci­at­ed eco­nom­ic mod­el had been val­i­dat­ed, all that was miss­ing was the offi­cial accred­i­ta­tion grant­ed by the Chi­nese Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion, which has just been com­mu­ni­cat­ed to us in March 2020. The next step will be the vis­it to Shang­hai of the French equiv­a­lent Com­mis­sion for Engi­neer­ing Titles (CTI), which will endorse the admis­sion of this train­ing by the French State, allow­ing its hold­ers to bear the title of engi­neer. The cho­sen field — mecha­tron­ics — cor­re­sponds to a dis­ci­pline on the bor­der­line between mechan­ics and elec­tron­ics, with a large part of sig­nal and infor­ma­tion pro­cess­ing. For French stu­dents, it will be a real immer­sion in a city of inter­na­tion­al dimension. 

“Shang­hai and its 25 mil­lion inhab­i­tants attract some of the world’s largest com­pa­nies, includ­ing Suez, Engie, Safran, PSA, Das­sault Sys­tèmes, Valeo and many oth­ers. Stu­dents will have access to Man­darin class­es and will be very well received,” empha­sizes Marc Bon­diou. “For every­one, French and Chi­nese alike, this is an oppor­tu­ni­ty to start great careers with lead­ing Chi­nese or French com­pa­nies, not to men­tion sim­ply dis­cov­er­ing the other”.
