College of Science and Technology

Updated on:

In all its training components combined, the College of Science and Technology groups together nearly 9,500 students, studying in the fields of mathematics and its applications, computer science, physics, engineering science, chemistry, biology, earth and environmental sciences.

The College of Science and Technology plays a major role in developing and coordinating the policy of higher education and lifelong learning in the field of science and technology.

Its main missions are also to provide students with career guidance, to develop international training programmes and to promote the transmission of technical and scientific culture and information. It is actively involved in student life on all its campus sites.

The College places special emphasis on creating a link between its training programmes and the high-quality research conducted in the University of Bordeaux research laboratories and departments.

The College is located on the campus sites in Talence, Pessac, Gradignan, Mérignac, Bordeaux (Victoire and Carreire), Agen and Arcachon.

The College of Science and Technology is responsible for the overall management of the training courses offered in the field of science and technology, which mainly covers chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics and its applications, physics, earth science, environmental science and life science. The latter is coordinated jointly with the College of Health Sciences.

The missions of the College of Science and Technology include:

  • developing and coordinating the policy for higher education and continuing education through work/study programmes and apprenticeships in the fields of science and technology, as well as creating conditions conducive to the transmission of knowledge and skills
  • promoting the policy of higher and continuing education, through apprenticeships and work-study programmes in the field of science and technology at the university's central level
  • participating in the development of the institution's overall educational policy
  • participating in the coordination of career guidance for students and their integration into the workforce
  • developing international training programmes and international mobility
  • participating in the university's central management dialogue to ensure the financial, human, logistical and property resources required for carrying out its missions
  • distributing the human and financial resources allocated by the university's board of directors to the components, decentralised administrative departments and the commissions within the framework of the management dialogue
  • promoting the transmission of scientific and technical information and culture
  • being involved in the campus life on the different campus sites of the College of Science and Technology closely in line with the institute's policy and the departments concerned: local medical department, cultural department, support to student associations and projects, Sports office)
  • coordinating the management of the College's staff
  • coordinating the education/research link with the College's training components, departments and affiliated research units
  • obtaining the resources required for ensuring and perpetuating the quality of the affiliated training programmes based on their specificities (practical, experimental, in-the-field training)
