MSc Students and Engineers

PEGASE scientists are involved in the coordination of three specialisations in two programmes at Institut Agro - Agrocampus Ouest.

Agricultural Engineer programme

The agricultural engineer programme is a 3-year programme, equivalent to a MSc degree in science and technology. Entry into this specific French program is highly competitive and admittance requires passing a national exam.

Within this programme, PEGASE coordinates the “Science and Engineering in Animal Production”(Sipa) programme. Students are trained in knowledge acquisition, methodological tools, analysis, and to think about and act to solve today’s and tomorrow’s problems in livestock production. The course covers topics ranging from animal biology to livestock production systems. It addresses issues related to the region and the livestock production sector, to ensure economically viable and socially acceptable livestock production systems.

MSc programme

The MSc training course is a 2-year programme realised in partnership with other French “grandes écoles” or universities. For this programme, PEGASE coordinates two specialisations with the University of Rennes 1 (for MSc SAED and SCMV) and ONIRIS (for MSc SAED).

The MSc programme “Animal science for tomorrow’s livestock production” (SAED)

This multidisciplinary and integrative programme on animal science covers topics of cell biology up to the animal in livestock production systems. This specialisation trains students for a professional career in science or industry. The objective of the SAED programme is to offer a unique training programme in France in animal and livestock production science.

The MSc programme “Cellular and molecular aspects of life science” (SCMV)

This "à la carte" training aims to provide students with fundamental knowledge in the technological and professionalising disciplines of cell and molecular biology, including genetics, protein biochemistry, cellular communication, toxicology, and oncology. The fields of application of SCMV are numerous and cover areas of biotechnology, agronomy (without a specific target or theme of interest) and human health.
