M2 (IMQ) Instrumentation, Measurement, Quality

The Instrumentation, Measurement, Quality (IMQ) program is designed to train managers to work in the field of measurement and control techniques, integrating a quality approach.

  • Metrology engineer
    Specialized in measurement techniques and working closely with quality and R&D departments, metrology engineers work with their teams of technicians to create new software to improve and optimize instrument profitability.
  • Methods engineer
    The methods engineer's mission is to constantly improve product manufacturing processes: improving work methods, organizing workstations, optimizing costs, improving equipment availability and reliability...
  • Quality engineer
    The Quality Engineer is responsible for optimizing and continuously improving product and service quality management. At each stage of the process, he/she oversees the implementation of procedures defining everyone's role in achieving quality.

Skills acquired on completion of the Master's degree

The course provides in-depth training in physical measurement and analysis techniques (optical, acoustic, vibratory, etc.), measurement and instrumentation chains, and quality and certification methods.


The Master 2 IMQ is organized around four blocks of knowledge and skills and in two semesters of 30 ECTS each.

MASTER 2 - Semester 3

  • Optical, acoustic and vibration measurement sensors  
  • Mechanical properties of materials
  • Méthode de modélisation  
  • Chaîne de mesure, instrumentation intelligente
  • Quality management - measurement control  
  • Quality and quality management
  • Language  
  • Personalized career plan

MASTER 2 - Semester 4

  • Collective instrumentation development project  
  • Metrology & quality
  • Internship (4 to 6 months)

They work in a wide variety of industrial sectors: automotive, rail, aeronautics, transport, public works, agrifood, medical and pharmaceutical. They work in both SMEs and large industrial groups, in production as well as in research and development (design office).

The course is designed for professional integration and is not recommended for further study at doctoral level.
