About

Paris-Saclay University's European Master in Biological and Chemical Engineering for a Sustainable Bioeconomy Erasmus Mundus Joint degree aims at providing top-level and up-to-date education in chemical and biological engineering applied to the design and development of bio-based products and processes.

Overview

The objective of Paris-Saclay University's European Master in Biological and Chemical Engineering for a Sustainable Bioeconomy is to provide all students with a solid multidisciplinary scientific background in biology, chemistry and biotetechnology, combined with a good knowledge of bio-based products markets, and value-chain sustainability assessement. Bioceb aims at training student to systemic approaches at different scales, from the biological cell to macroeconomic systems.

The programme is built-up arround three key pedagological pillars: an academic programme (lecture and practice), a green-line multidisciplinary project carried out over the 2 years, and an internship.

What you will learn

Thanks to the Bioceb modular format, each student is given the opportunity to build-up his/her specific curriculum with a specialization in one major field of biotechnologies, among bioprocesses design and up-scaling, biomass engineering and valorisation, bioproducts design and production. In the framework of Bioceb programme, the Biomass Engineering for Bioeconomy (BEB) track organised by AgroParisTech whithin the Integrative and Predictive Biology Master consists in a multi-disciplinary training providing:

  • in M1: knowledge on agro-ressources and biorefinery combined with skills in value chain sustainability assessment and economics
  • in M2: in-depth knowledge of plant biochemical diversity (in particular through secondary metabolites) and of the biotechnological tools (genetic modification, synthetic biology, innovative extraction strategies according to green chemistry principles) supporting innovation in bioeconomy.

Besides the theoretical and experimental training in this scientific fields, the programme includes a course on bioeconomy and innovation to train the students to industry-driven approaches.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Plant-soil interactions
  • Physiology and genetic of plant development
  • Molecular biology of microorganisms
  • Green chemistry - biosourced buildings blocks
  • Biochemistry of plant components and biorefinery
  • Agricultural and viticultural soils
  • Sustainable and cleaner production
  • Biorefinery systems: enzyme technology, chemistry processes design, kinetics
  • Biopolymers: basics, introduction and applications
