The University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard[1] (UTBM) is a Grande Ecole university[2] of engineering located in Belfort and Montbéliard, France. The University of technology of Belfort-Montbéliard is part of the network of the three universities of technology. Inspired by the American University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, these three universities (UTC, UTBM and UTT) are a French mixture between the universities of this country and its schools of engineers (Grandes Ecoles).

Their teaching model is a mix between the North-American model and the French traditions: courses choice, separation of the courses, tutorials / directed work (TDs) and labs / practical work (TPs); these three universities give an engineering degree equivalent to the Bac+5 formations of the French Grandes Ecoles.


UTBM alumni include: Yukiya Amano,[3] Claude Lorius,[4] Jean-Baptiste Waldner

  1. ^ Université de Technologie de Belfort-Montbéliard refers to itself as the University of Technology or UTBM on its English language web site. (Retrieved 2007-10-27.) However, University of Technology is too general to be used as the name for its Wikipedia entry, and UTBM is too cryptic[opinion]. In its discussion of the three French Universities of Technology (retrieved 2007-10-27), it[clarification needed] identifies each by its campus. So it seems reasonable to identify this university as the University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard.[opinion]
  2. ^ Although called a "university", the University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard is in fact a non-university institute (école extérieure aux universités), as defined by Chapter I, Section II (Articles 34 through 36) of French law 84-52 of 26 January 1984 regarding higher education (the loi Savary). See Article I of French Ministry of Education, Research, and Technology Decree 99-24 of 14 January 1999, which created the University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard.
