One diploma and a joint specialisation: Electronic Engineering and Automation. This course gives students the necessary theoretical and technical skills for understanding, interpreting and implementing projects, studies and works designed by engineers. Students become qualified technicians who communicate with engineers regarding a work team’s management and supervision. They can analyse and participate in designing systems or equipment which use analog and digital electronic technology, electrical engineering, automation, telecommunications, networks and industrial data processing.

At the IUT Montpellier-Sète, we offer 2 study tracks for the B.U.T in Electronic Engineering and Automation:

  • Electronics and Embedded Systems

  • Electricity and Energy Efficiency

Classic Teaching

Full-time three-year course, divided into six semesters for a total of 2 000 hours of classes.

You will earn 180 E.C.T.S credits upon graduating from this course.

The course is taught in the form of lectures and tutorials. Students are graded based on continuous assessment. Students gain experience in professional situations through internships, projects and multidisciplinary activities.


22 to 26 weeks as an intern, spread out across the 2nd and 3rd year.


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

You develop various skills over the course of the B.U.T in Electronic Engineering and Automation (GEII).

Common Skills to the 2 Study Tracks:

  • DESIGNING: Designing a system, technological choices.
  • CHECKING: Developing a procedure, validating the smooth running of a system.
  • MAINTAINING: Implementing a maintenance strategy.

Specific Skills to the Electricity and Energy Efficiency Study Track

INSTALLING: Installing production, conversion and energy management systems. Interacting with the different stakeholders, from protocol design through to installation.

Specific Skills to the Electronics and Embedded Systems Study Track:

IMPLEMENTING: Implementing a hardware or software system. Interacting with the different stakeholders, from installation through to implementation.
