The international Master's Degree Microalgae Bioprocess Engineering is integrated in a two-year program in process and bioprocess engineering, with three academic semesters (lectures in english) and a six-month intership in industry or research laboratory.



  • to develop an industrial process for microalgae valorization
  • to be able to conduct a research project on microalgae
  • to be able to manage an industrial project related to the microalgae field
  • to be familiar with the multidisciplinary approach needed in microalgae field (biology, engineering)


Students enroll for a two-semester program (second year of the Master). A total of 60 ECTS must be validated to graduate. For
