The 2015–16 school year will mark the rollout of a new first-year curriculum at Grenoble Institute of Technology-Phelma. The scope of the PMP (physics, materials, processes) and PET (physics, electronics, telecoms) core curricula will be broadened to six 32-hour science courses.
The new curriculum will minimize dispersing core content across too many courses and sharpen the focus on the school’s standout disciplines: physics, electronics, and materials. The school also hopes that the transformation will allow students to choose their second-year major more easily.
Incidentally, the new curriculum will allow the school to reduce the number of groups (ten groups of 36 students going ahead, compared to twelve groups of 32 students in the past) and to use resources more efficiently.
