This option aims to give students the scientific knowledge and methodological tools needed to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the sustainable production of biomolecules, materials and alternative fuels using agricultural raw materials.
Number of ECTS credits : 60
Language of instruction : In French
The course covers the production and quality control of the raw materials, processing technologies (biological, physical, chemical), tools for studying the environmental impact of sectors, and the analysis of socio-economic sustainability and regulatory frameworks.
This integrated approach is required for the development of sustainable innovation strategies. Graduates should be able to work in one area of a production sector while knowing how to situate their activity within an overall context and work with different sectors (R & D, supply, production, marketing, sales...).
The option is organized jointly with the École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Montpellier (ENSCM) and will involve students from both schools. The course is organized around four fields:
After bringing students from both schools up to speed (September), the course is organized into three main parts: common core (October-December), option period (January-February), and compulsory engineering internship (March-September) in France or abroad.
The course also includes a project conducted in small groups (October-February). The program is largely based on case studies and field visits, and involves the participation of diverse professionals.
The 3rd year option is open, after review by the admissions committee, to students who have validated the M1 level (first year of a master's program) and come from:
Application forms may be obtained from the educational directorate of your institution.
