The University of Technology of Compiègne (French: Université de Technologie de Compiègne, UTC) is a public research university located in Compiègne, France. It was founded in 1972 by Guy Deniélou and is described as the first experimental technological university in France.
UTC's 6-hectare (15-acre) campus is part of the city of Compiègne, 80 kilometres (50 mi) north of Paris, and overlooks the Oise River with a blend of traditional and modern architecture. The university is one among a small group of French technological universities which tend to be primarily devoted to the instruction of technical arts and applied sciences.
UTC is organized into nine research units within the School of Engineering. The university offers around thirty degree programs in twenty fields, leading to bachelor's, master's, and doctorate degrees.
The teaching model is a mix between North American and French traditions; students select their classes, which are complemented by assisted classwork (French: Travaux dirigés) and applied labwork (French: Travaux pratiques).
