Biological Engineering

Biological Engineering is a very large disciplinary field, which covers all the steps of a process based on the use of living material or coming fom a living being.

The course must train generalists engineers ables to take action at any moment, from the set up to the exploitation of an industrial system linked to the use of living materials.

Considering the variety of issues to broach, they have to possess solid knowledge, both theoretical and practical, in the field of Engineering Science (process engineering, biochemical engineering, industrial microbiology) and Life Science (biochemistry, engineering of genetics, immunology, microbiology).


The engineer specialised in Biological Engineering has a solid scientific and technical baggage at his/her disposal, allowing him/her to realise multidisciplinary duties in various business sectors (fermentation industries or pharmaceutical, cosmetic or even agri-food fields).
