University Bachelor of Technology (B.U.T.) Chemistry – Sète Campus

Our IUT’s Chemistry Departmentsprovide both a theoretical and practical  education, mainly aiming to equip students to become qualified technicians, who will be engineers’ or research scientists’ direct co-workers, in all application fields of chemistry.

As part of its locally-oriented teachings (10% of the course), the Chemistry Department at the Sète Campus provides training on the environment, more specifically environmental chemical analysis. This environment-focused education tackles topics such as air, water and soil pollution, waste treatment, rehabilitating polluted sites, sampling techniques and field analysis. 

At the IUT Montpellier-Sète, we offer one study track for theB.U.T in Chemistry – Sète Campus:

  • Analysis, quality control, environmental chemistry (ACAE)

Initial Education

Three years of full-time education, split into six semesters with a total of 2000 hours of lessons.

Students earn180 E.C.T.S. credits throughout the course.

The course is taught through both lectures and tutorials. Students are graded based oncontinuous assessment. They are placed into professional situations thanks to internships, projects and multidisciplinary activities.

600 hours dedicated to projects across the 3-year course.

You will develop an amount of different skills over the course of the B.U.T Chemistry – Montpellier Campus programme:

  • Analysing solid, liquid and gaseous samples.
  • Synthesising molecules.
  • Creating materials and/or formulated products.
  • Producing intermediate compounds and end products.
  • Managing a chemistry laboratory or a production floor.
  • Controlling Environment, Health and Safety standards.
