    The Agricultural Engineering curriculum promotes an international outlook thanks to a rich cultural mix and increasing opportunities to study with one of our academic partners. Over the three-year programme, students earn the equivalent of a Bachelor of Science (at the end of the first year), a Master of Science 1 (at the end of the second year) and a Master of Science 2 (at the end of the third year).

    Career counselling over the three years helps students tailor the curriculum around their individual interests.

    • B.Sc. covers all of the subjects essential to a future agricultural engineer, providing each student with essential knowledge required to pursue the programme and in a range of possible jobs. Composed of 2 semesters, it includes an internship in an agricultural company, an engineering student project and career guidance support.
    • M.Sc 1 is structured around two key choices. During the 1st semester (semester 7), students choose from among 3 pre-specializations; during the 2nd semester (semester 8), they either choose from among 7 specializations or depart on an exchange programme.
