Physical measurements

The Physical Measurements courses offer you the opportunity to understand, design and implement measurement systems in the field of physical sciences.

BUT Physical Measurements

The BUT MPh trains technicians capable of carrying out and to carry out and exploit measurements in the field of physical sciences.

It is a academics with a broad spectrum in the fields of physics, chemistry, materials, instrumentation and metrology:
- A dynamic environment, industrial and research sectors in a wide variety of fields
- A academics professionalizing: work-study program from the 2nd year; very well equipped technical rooms
- Opportunities for openness: a semester abroad in the 3rd year; a technical project in English

2 PATHS with 3 skills of different levels of development for its paths

+ 2 common skills

- Conduct a measurement campaign (level 3)
- Deploying metrology and the quality approach (level 3)


- Explore the world of physics: mechanics, thermics, optics
- To observe the heart of the matter : chemistry, materials, spectroscopy
- Mastering the tools of measurement: electronics, computing, piloting
- Communicate today: English, business, expression

"The key points of Physical Measurements for me: - the alternation between theory and practice allows to highlight fundamental fundamental notions, and thus to concretize the more literal aspect of literal aspect of academics - group spirit, cohesion, essential prerequisites for future life in life in a company, through the numerous group works and projects and projects - the state-of-the-art equipment made available allows for practical familiarization with the complex devices that are omnipresent in industry ".
