UTC's TSH Department proses themes that relate to social sciences and/or to humanities where day-to-day situations in an engineer's professional life. The programmes of the Master's degree specialties all include more or less time to TSH courses. For example, learning a modern language will continue till the level seen a valid for the Master's degree has been reached.

Other courses serve as descriptors of the entrepreneurial, organizational and management worlds, and to communicate efficiently, not only in a foreign language, but in various professional situations.

Language acquisition and training aims not only at improving students' foreign language skills but also to make the students more aware of issues that relate to and/or depend on communication and cultural questions.

At Master' degree level, the languages taught are English and French as a foreign language (FLE). Other languages are taught at UTC but are only open to students who have acquired a proficiency in the two main languages.

The UTC Master's degree can be awarded to students whose mother tongue is French who have reached a B1 level in the Common European reference language framework of the European Council or who have attained the level B1 in French as a foreign language.

You also have the possibility to demonstrate your level of proficiency by obtaining a score of at least 550 points at the TOEIC "Listening and Reading Test" or equivalent.

UTC is authorized to issue the national Master's degree in the framework of Continuous Education. This training cursus is open to all holders of Bac+3 qualifications, or with more than 3 (even 5) years' experience, depending on the specialty (as the admission sees fit).

The courses are organized in units that enable the students to adjust their training schedule as a function of their professional objectives and their background, for example, to integrate the M2 level directly.

Validation of a 'background' experience can be used for candidates with at least 3 years' experience in technical management position (or equivalent), having a direct connection with the Master specialty chosen. A "VAE" Jury will assess experience on the basis of a personal report and an interview.

Candidates are invited to prove that they have the same level of knowledge as a student who has followed an equivalent complete cursus. The VAE jury will define the contours of the validation accorded and the knowledge content and skills to be assessed by a complementary examination.
