Career opportunities

Further study

PhD in a research laboratory or within the framework of an industrial contract for training through research (CIFRE), master’s degree in management, etc.


With their advanced knowledge of plant science, food science and food engineering, graduates of this specialization are capable of giving correct diagnoses on quality and manufacturing processes, of apprehending an industrial project in its entirety and of bring it to completition. Proving the pertinence of their qualification, these engineers find job in many professions, from R&D to marketing, in various fields, agricultural coops, primary grain processing companies (cereals, oilseeds, etc.), secondary processing companies (pet food and animal feed, brewing, starch manufacturing, etc.).
