// Biological engineering


// Introduction and objectives of the course

The course aims at training highly skilled technicians in the following fields:

  • Diagnosis
  • Quality control and assurance
  • Research and development:
    • in public laboratories (university, SRC, INSERM, INRA)
    • in private laboratories (institut Pasteur, small and medium enterprises)
  • Production
  • Dietetics
  • Sales engineering

// Course structure and content

During the 2nd year the student has the opportunity to choose his/her option between biological and biochemical analysis, dietetics or food science.
