Due to the covid epidemic, the University Institute of Technology (IUT) of Chartres, attached to the University of Orléans, had not organized a graduation ceremony for its students since 2019.
On Saturday, at the cultural center of Lucé, the establishment revived this tradition. 138 students received their diplomas from the management in the presence of their parents and teachers. Christian Orieux, director of the IUT, explained: “This graduation ceremony concerns 86 students who obtained their DUT (university diploma in technology, i.e. after two years of study) and 52 obtained their professional license (three studies). Of these 138 students, 97 followed an apprenticeship course. A good part of them will follow higher education and the other part will go to the job market. Our objective remains the formation of a pool of skills at the service of companies and communities. »
Dominique Force, Chairman of the Board of Directors, congratulated the students before recalling: “This diploma is a sesame either for the continuation of your studies, or for entering the economic world. Your diplomas are sought after and valued by recruiters. »
Bertrand Massot, vice-president of the departmental council, told the students: “The country needs you and your skills. There are many unfilled vacancies. »
