Enterprising and engaged, UBS focuses on four priority areas: Sea and Coastline; Industry of the Future; Environment; Health and Disability and Cyber and Data Intelligence. A human-scale institution, UBS has three campuses, Lorient, Vannes and Pontivy, and draws on the expertise of its 900 staff, including 500 teaching staff and research lecturers, to train nearly 10,000 students every year.
