Research at UTT

UTT-Troyes, a research-intensive model constantly seeking "excellence"

A model of scientific activity specific to Universities of Technology that articulates fundamental research, disciplinary research and technological research in order to respond to major societal challenges. Research activities are conducted by permanent faculty members, associate researchers, project researchers, PASTs, PhD students and technical and administrative employees who work in the fields of engineering sciences, information and communication sciences and technologies, as well as humanities and social sciences, with a volume of 1,480 rank A publications over the last five years.

Over 360 staff, including 123 lecturer-cum-research scientists, 183 PhD students, 22 technical support staff and "admin" agents work for UTT research.
