General presentation of the programme

The bachelor's programme in Engineering Sciences : Engineering, totals 180 credits spread over 3 years. The student will choose one of the six majors on offer (150 credits). Each major comprises a general, common, polyvalent course of 107 credits and a specialised course of 43 credits. There is a range of six specialisations to choose from : Applied Chemistry and Physics, Construction, Electricity, Computer Studies, Applied Mathematics and Mechanics. The student will complete his programme with a minor from a course in Polytechnics, or an opening minor, or an ensemble of options for 30 credits.
The student who opts for a minor in specialised Polytechnics, will choose it in an orientation which is different from the major. The courses which will already have been taken into account in the major will have to be replaced by other options to attain the 30 credits. The aim of this major/minor in Polytechnics is to enable the student, if he so wishes, to acquire a basic training in two specialities in Engineering Sciences, thus increasing his technical polyvalence, or to prepare for a master's in Engineering Sciences situated mid-way between the basic orientations at the bachelor's level. It is the case, for example, with the major/minor association in "Electricity - Mechanics " or " Mechanics - Electricity" which constitutes the normal access path to the master's in Electromechanics and likewise via the combination" Electricity- Applied Chemistry and Physics " which paves the way for the domain of the Nanotechnologies.
The minors in Polytechnics organised by the FSA for the bachelor's of Engineering Sciences are as follows : Applied Chemistry and Physics, Construction, Electricity, Computer Studies, Applied Mathematics, Mechanics, Biomedical engineering and Architecture. The first six are described below. Contrary to the other minors organised at UCL, the dividing up of the work volumes for the minors in Polytechnics are equivalent to around 10 credits in the second year and around 20 credits in the third year, instead of 15 and then 15 credits respectively.
