Training description

An engineer in biochemical engineering is able to master all the methodologies and processes associated with the conversion of biotic or non-biotic materials. In other words, he is able to design and optimize new processes, master the conception and realization of new bio-catalysts (micro-organisms, enzymes) and calculate biological reactors and unit operations of extraction-purification. The course combines a grounding in the field of life sciences (biology, biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, physiology, genetic engineering,?) and in engineering sciences (biochemical engineering, process engineering, extraction and separation techniques,?). The biotechnological engineer is thus capable of understanding the most modern concepts in molecular biology as well as mastering the concepts of thermodynamics and engineering based on a good understanding of physics and mathematics.
A large part of the course focuses on the acquisition of cross-disciplinary competences (languages, economics, project management, communication,?).
The biotechnological engineer will work in sectors ranging from health, agronomy, food science to the environment and will be equally competent in production units or bio-process development, R&D or fundamental research.
