A training course adapted to companies’ requirements :

The goal of our curriculum is to train executives in the Health field meeting the emerging demands and needs of the Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics, Health Food industry (formulation, clinical development, production, distribution) and of the Health and Safety and the Envrionment sectors by:

  • Combining successfully completed scientific training and professional training
  • Curriculum designed and led by professionals in each course
  • Learning the Project management tools and softwares of the industry, mastering English and a 2nd foreign language.
  • A long work placement in the industry (3 to 5 months in M1 and 4 to 6 months in M2)
  • The professionnalisation of courses adapted to the employment market’s demands through the opening of the M2 to apprenticeship training and continuing education (VAP, VAE).

The wide range of the disciplines taught, the implementation and the conducting of projects as well as the courses on offer allow the students to develop transversal skills in Health Engineering which can apply to various sectors such as the pharmaceutical industry, the cosmetics, the biomaterials and the environment. These skills give a significant boost to professional insertion.

The skills are acquired through to a solid common core completed by different courses related to the various sectors of application in terms of health products. The courses provide a double competence “health profession” and project management. This double competence is appreciated by professionals because project management is applicable to all professional sectors, making our graduates operational executives.

These skills can be developed following different criteria :
