Research and development
As an engineer trained in a university environment, Polytech Montpellier engineers are made aware very early on of the need for innovation and research in order to acquire the ability to innovate and undertake research. For this purpose, some projects and internships are carried out with the school’s research professors in the associated laboratories. They thus learn to identify the constraints and objectives of the researchers with whom they work. They can continue their studies with a thesis, conducted in one of the school’s 12 associated laboratories for example.
1400 engineering students
300 graduates per year
300 guest lecturers, industry and business managers
130 research professors
140 doctoral students
