First, the fundamental objective of this Agriculture Science programme at ISA Lille - Graduate School of Agriculture and Bioengineering (France Agro³) is to have a general overview of Agricultural Science. Courses range from food chain theory and crop management to livestock and plant production. Although this general approach is taught through its technical and scientific aspects, it is also crucial to include economic, sociological and ethical aspects to comprehend the notion of sustainability in agricultural.
- an international view of the issue of agriculture, highlighting certain national and/or regional specificities,
- the necessary tools to manage crop and livestock production;
- the necessary tools to manage agricultural processes, from ruminant nutrition to distribution channels
- a practical view of site management, thanks to lectures and seminars by experts in the field;
- the methods to manage projects within an international context, with multicultural staff.
Most of all, the Agricultural Science program gives students:
Learning to work in a team and manage complex projects is an essential skill for any engineer. Therefore, one day every week is dedicated to group projects, supervised by a Professor and a representative from the agricultural industry or a partner company. These projects allow students to apply their technical knowledge to real-world issues faced by our industry partners.
As with all programs at ISA, students will spend 40% of their studies in internships. These periods of professional immersion, carried out either in France or abroad, in a company or a laboratory, expose students to the reality of the professional world.
Thanks to our project-based pedagogy and extensive professional experience, ISA Alumni are ready to join the global workforce even before they graduate. Indeed, 90% of ISA Alumni are employed within 6 months of graduating.
The alumni go on to work in diverse fields: Sales, Marketing or Technical positions, Service in agriculture (insurance companies, audits, consulting) as well as in Research and Development in technical and research institutes, Project management at regional or national levels (professional organizations).

Open to students from different countries and sometimes very disparate cultural traditions, the intercultural dimension therefore plays an important role in the program. The internationalization of students’ skills and personal qualities will therefore quickly take concrete form.
The program is entirely taught in English by an international team of Professors, researchers and professionals in the food sector, from France and abroad (staff coming from partner universities and partner companies). Students therefore benefit from the additional global expertise of professors and experts from France and other countries.
