Welcome to the Savoie Mont Blanc University!

With 14 000 students, a rich variety of multidisciplinary education and 19 research laboratories with an international reputation, the Savoie Mont Blanc University is an institution on a human scale which combines proximity with its territories, association with the COMUE Université Grenoble Alpes, and a wide perspective on Europe and the world. It offers short courses (university degrees in technology, university degrees) and long courses (generalist, specialist or vocational bachelor degrees, master degrees, engineering degrees and doctorates), in both first level and continuing education. On its three university campus sites in Annecy, Le Bourget-du-Lac and Jacob-Bellecombette, it offers particularly attractive living and studying conditions, at the heart of an exceptional environment, between lakes and mountains. In support of research and education, the international aspect contributes to the identity, attractiveness, dynamism and general development of our establishment. The focus of the Savoie Mont Blanc University is, on the one hand, to develop international projects, joint award qualifications, and programs delivered in English, and on the other hand, wherever possible, to encourage mobility for students, lecturers, and researchers as well as for administrative staff. Present in 5 continents, with 240 bilateral agreements, it has been able to take full advantage of its outstanding location on the borders of Switzerland and Italy to develop strong, special relationships with the higher education establishments of these two countries.

Our students are certain to find in Savoie Mont Blanc University a strong dynamic, a personal quality in their supervision, support in the choice and development of their personal plans as well as the required facilities for integration into involvement in working life. Choosing the Université Savoie Mont Blanc means an accumulation of every possible option for personal success and fulfillment.

Human-sized campuses

Located between Grenoble and Lyon, close to the Swiss and Italian borders, Savoie Mont Blanc University is a state-financed multi-disciplinary establishment of higher education, recognized at regional, national and international levels. 14000 students in total on the campuses of Jacob-Bellecom-better, Annecy-le-Vieux, and Le Bourget-du-Lac, studying 200 proposed courses.

Research for recognized quality

Its 19 laboratories maintain close links with national research institutes(CNRS, INRA, CERN, CEA, IRSTEA). They distinguish themselves in particular by the organization into interdisciplinary thematic axes: mountain studies, solar energy, physics, and mechatronics. The quality of this scientific environment is further enhanced by the proximity of the CERN in Geneva, the largest particle accelerator in the world, and the nano-technologies research cluster in Grenoble.

Mechatronics is a synergistic and integrated process of several sciences and skills (among which control and computer sciences, electronics, mechanics) which allows to conceive and to design products and systems with augmented or improved functionality and which requires to consider the conception of the product or system in its overall lifecycle in a cooperative interdisciplinary approach.

After having completed this program, the students are being prepared for Ph.D. studies. They can also work as engineers or occupy high level technical and scientific positions in research centers, in research and development departments and in specialized consulting firms.
