The engineers are trained to design and  develop new cleaner and safer processes or operate any type of chemical or biotechnological industrial process:
- acquire or improve skills in the fields of biotechnology, synthetic chemistry and processes;
- strengthen fundamental knowledge in these 3 areas while expanding the scientific culture and tools necessary to their integration into a multidisciplinary team.
