Be close to everything

At only two hours from Paris and Lyon by train, studying à the IUT allows you not only to visit France but also its European neighbours thanks to Dijon's central location.

Become part of a dynamic campus

The Dijon site is located at the heart of the University of Burgundy's Montmuzard campus. The IUT's structures were built in two parts: the first in 1968 and the second one between 1998 and 2000.

Thus, the IUT buildings are a well-established part of the surrounding University landscape. Moreover, since its creation, the IUT has developed a solid network with regional companies, thanks to internships and various projects in the community.
