U of Nantes Microalgae Bioprocess Engineering Master’s degree

March 16, 2017

Now you can go to France for a Master degree in Microalgae Bioprocess Engineering.

University of Nantes, in the north-western French region of Pays de la Loire, has announced that they will begin offering a Master’s degree program in Microalgae Bioprocess Engineering, beginning next September. The degree will cover theoretical and practical aspects necessary to develop industrial processes for microalgae valorization, from culture to final refining of produced biomass in extracted products.

This international degree is integrated into a two-year program in Process and Bioprocess engineering, with three academic semesters (lectures in English) and a six-month internship in industry or in a research laboratory.

Students enroll for a two-semester program (second year of the Master’s). A total of 60 ECTS must be validated to graduate. For candidates entering the first year of the Master’s Degree (PM3E, Mines Nantes), the program will deliver fundamentals in process engineering and project management before entering the second year of the Master’s Degree (see Master’s PM3E for details).

All courses are taught in English. French courses are organized for foreign students. A French Summer School is also available on request (see language chapter).

The courses aim to teach students the technical and scientific issues specific to the development of culture processes and biorefinery of microalgae; the ability to manage a research project or industrial development for the enhancement of microalgae for a given sector; familiarity with the industrial exploitation of microalgae issues; handling of multi-sectoral projects; and the ability to manage projects in connection with the issue of a circular economy involving the cultivation of microalgae.
