A history rooted in its territory

Since 1973, the creation of the 9 departments of academics as well as the professional licenses has always been done in close collaboration with the economic and institutional circles: the CCI 74, the Chambre de Métiers 74, the Club des Entreprises de l'université Savoie Mont Blanc, the Conseil Départemental de Haute Savoie, the Région Auvergne Rhône Alpes, ...

Over the years, the IUT has developed and opened training courses in line with the needs of the professional sectors of the territory:

Mechanical Engineering, Marketing Techniques, Social Careers, Business Management, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physical Measurements, Quality, Industrial Logistics and Organization, Networks and Telecommunications, Industrial and Outdoor Sports Professions

In 1985, in order to meet the expectations of families and the region, special sections were opened to allow young people to continue their studies without abandoning their careers as high-level athletes. Today, with the implementation of the BUT, the special sections are limited in number and concern 2 BUT :

Quality, Openness, Development

In addition to the knowledge that it provides to its students on the basis of national programs, the IUT of Annecy has the mission to provide each student with complex knowledge of how to act by multiplying the opportunities to implement the theoretical teachings through learning situations and evaluations within the framework of supervised work, practical work, internships and projects.

The speakers come from different backgrounds (teachers, research professors, freelancers from the professional world), as well as our International Learning Center (studies or internships abroad) offer our students an open-minded approach to business and the world.
