Faculty of Science
Each year the P.V.I.A is open to 50 students coming from French or foreign universities and holders of a diploma in biology at baccalauréat' plus 2 years level, to follow a bachelors course, and baccalauréat' plus 3 years level for a masters. An education board carries out selection of the 50 students based on application and interview, and according to former results and motivation.
The Biology department applied to plant production and food industry (PV and IAA) has a three-year programme. The aim is to give students theorical knowledge and practical situations in the various aspects this special field covers. However, we concentrate specifically on plant production adapted to the food industry as this constitutes the main theme of the bachelors course. The masters course is aimed at quality control and food security, and innovations in PV and IAA.
Five important questions focus on these central themes :
Each student is allocated a supervisor and course tutor. A joint commission regularly assesses the courses. Work experience and/or periods abroad are encouraged.
The council for improvements is composed jointly of professionals from Plant Production and Food Industry and of the university, and makes sure that the P.V.I.A. runs smoothly.
