At a cost of 1.75 million euros, financed by the State, the Nouvelle-Aquitaine Region, the Department of Landes, the Mons urban area and the University of Pays de l’Adour, the new setting allows the network and telecommunications department of the IUT to take the turn of the “industrial revolution of the XXIand century”, according to the new prefect of the Landes, Françoise Tahéri. And to connect the establishment as well as possible with the technological professional world.

“University 4.0”

To do this, the hall is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. A first room, called teletraining, thus presents telepresence robots, with screens placed in front of them, to promote the inclusion of students affected by long-term illnesses or simply to promote distance learning. Other developments of connected objects are planned, in particular for vulnerable people such as a fall detector vacuum cleaner, but also agricultural tools or tools useful for communication in the event of a natural disaster. Ultimately, the IUT wants to support the creation of one or two local start-ups.

“It is also in this room that we are developing ‘university 4.0’”, says Laurent Gallon, teacher-researcher at the Computer Science Laboratory. “We are working on an artificial intelligence capable of capturing the moments of dropout, of gaps of the pupils in order to adapt the educational course as well as possible. »

Cybersecurity

Dear to the vice-president of the Region, Renaud Lagrave, who mentioned the attack on the Dax hospital, cybersecurity is an integral part of the teaching of the Computer Laboratory. An education that is both technical, with the implementation of system architecture, and theoretical, with an apprenticeship in digital law.

Also in terms of security, the research data produced by the Networks and Technology department is stored directly in the hall, using a scaled data center. “It’s a reduced model but which puts the students of the Very High Speed ​​pro license in the conditions of the professional environment”, indicates Bertrand Charrier, director of the IUT of the Pays de l’Adour.

“We want to make Mont-de-Marsan a center of attraction for computer technology”

These same students who can discover and work on a reproduction, the architecture of the connection, from the subscriber socket to the operator’s exchange, in the fiber optic room. Or on 4G and 5G transmissions in the wireless network space.

“This investment was not in vain given the quality of the working environment that we offer both to our students and to our researchers, wants to believe Xavier Fortinon, president of the Landes departmental council. This is in line with our desire to make Mont-de-Marsan a center of attraction for computer technology. »

With this ultra-connected hall, the students of the IUT are not at their ultimate novelty: since September 2021, the era of the DUT and the professional license tends to end. The two courses must be combined in a single course, the University Bachelor of Technology (BUT).
