Licence Sciences et technologies, Parcours Sciences, arts et techniques de l'image et du son (SATIS)

La Licence Sciences et Technologies parcours SATIS propose un enseignement équilibré entre théorie et applications professionnelles dans le domaine de l’audiovisuel. Elle développe en parallèle connaissances culturelles, sens artistique, capacité d'adaptation et sens du travail en équipe et s’appuie sur une pédagogie par projet.

    The Science and Technology Licence course offers a balanced teaching between theory and professional applications in the audiovisual field. It also develops cultural knowledge, artistic sense, adaptability and teamwork skills, and is based on a project-based teaching approach. The course begins with a common core with the first two years of the SPI (Sciences Pour l'Ingénieur) degree and allows students to acquire a solid scientific foundation in the fields of applied sciences. The third year is built on a specialisation in image and sound professions through the realisation of audiovisual projects.

    Students participate in professional activities in a broad audiovisual field, in the areas of production, direction and audiovisual techniques.
    They acquire skills in the scientific, artistic, technical and organisational fields of audiovisual production.
    At the same time, they develop interpersonal skills, an ability to adapt and a sense of teamwork, particularly through practical work and internships in companies.


    The prerequisites for the Licence ST are those of the baccalaureate with mainly scientific options. Holders of this baccalaureate must also have completed a complementary artistic course, with a choice of cinema, theatre, music or plastic arts at a school or conservatory, for example. They will show a strong motivation for the cinema and audiovisual fields.


    The Science and Technology degree is accessible through the Marie Curie portal. The first year is common to all the Licences integrated into this portal. The second year is a common core with the "Engineering Sciences" degree and allows students to acquire a solid scientific foundation in the field of applied sciences, as well as knowledge in fundamental scientific disciplines.

    The third year is built on a progressive specialisation in image and sound professions through the realisation of audiovisual projects and prepares students for a Master's degree in "Cinema and Audiovisual" or "Acoustics and Musicology".


    At the end of the course, the student knows the production chain of a film or a video, from its conception to its broadcasting. They write, direct and edit a short audiovisual production of fiction or reportage.

    He/she has the scientific and technical bases necessary to master the tools (wave physics, signal theory and processing, geometric optics and computer science applied to image and sound, time-frequency representation and processing, audio-video technology, tools and applications),
    He/she demonstrates a good understanding of the characteristics of sound and iconic languages through a reading of the history of cinema, music, editing and its analysis.
    They know the theoretical bases of dramaturgy and the rules of writing for the screen and know how to express themselves with images and sound.
    He/she has legal knowledge (copyright/image rights) to establish the necessary authorisations for the distribution of a production.


    Create audiovisual projects by combining theoretical knowledge and transdisciplinary know-how.
    Develop audiovisual projects using a rigorous methodology (observe, document, analyse, problematise).
    Express in writing and orally a personal approach in a clear and argued manner, in French and in English.
    Design, organise, experiment with and finalise audiovisual projects on different media and supports, as part of a team with a wide range of skills.
    Analyse a professional environment and apply knowledge (methodological, technical, aesthetic, critical) to design, produce and/or participate in audiovisual projects.
    Develop audiovisual projects that take into account the requirements of a specification and respond to the reality of the professional environment.


    Projects and internships are numerous and highly supervised. Students are introduced to the practice of lighting, framing, sound, music, editing, production and directing through the production of sound fictions, ITWs, the production of a WebTV and a photographic story. Internships are highly recommended and are possible all year round, outside of teaching periods. They contribute to this learning process.



    The second year of the ST Licence offers a Personal and Professional Project Teaching Unit (PPPE) as well as an optional Teaching Unit which allows the student to confirm his or her orientation towards the last year of the ST Licence or which reorientates him or her towards the "Engineering Sciences" Licence courses.

    The last year of the Licence offers a "Professionalisation and applications" unit with practical teaching that confirms the student's choice of one of the courses in the "Audiovisual Cinema" Master's degree (Production and directing, Shooting, Editing and post-production, Sound for the image, Music for the image).


    The Student Personal and Professional Project Teaching Unit (PPPE) aims to structure the student's professional project. A skills assessment, combined with individual interviews, leads the student to take an active role in his or her training and to think about his or her professional project in terms of clearly identified abilities, initiated or developed during the practical courses. This strategy of searching for skills to be acquired in the context of current and future studies, internships, a gap year or a semester exchange abroad, combined with the preparation of a CV and the drafting of letters of motivation, are at the heart of the process of helping students to pursue their studies and find employment in the future.



    • Admission to L1 : through the Parcoursup system (for holders of a baccalaureate with mainly scientific options).
    • Admission in L2 : after obtaining a L1 Marie Curie portal.
    • Admission in the course of the curriculum (L3) : Admissibility on file and registration; admission on interview and QCM, for students who have validated a Bac+2 in a wide range of courses offered by the University (physics, law, management, literature, musicology, plastic arts, performing arts...), by the Ministry of Culture or for students from technological courses (BTS, DUT) who feel the need to perfect their knowledge through practice and to carry out a theoretical reflection on the history and aesthetics of cinema.
