Postgraduate programs offered by the university

MSc in Urban Agriculture and Green Cities

Agronomy, architecture, planning and geography, incorporating economic, political and social aspects, decision-making in a complex environment.
Aimed at: Providing future managers with training in professions involving urban innovation strategies and sustainable environmental development, while incorporating and applying innovative horticultural solutions to the built environment.


  • Acquire the technical skills needed to integrate multifunctional and innovative projects around plants into urban development plans and construction standards.

  • Acquire and/or deepen the skills to manage multidisciplinary teams, including planning, leadership, coordination, teamwork, and organizational skills.

  • To be able to develop a very broad vision of the problems inherent in urban agriculture and plant projects in the city at all stages of the project, both in the diagnosis and in the development of proposals by associating an analytical as well as a synthetic mind.

  • Be able to understand and master the systemic approach of the city by going beyond sectoral approaches.

Duration: 18 months
Program manager: Dr. Marie Asma Ben Othmen

MSc Circular Economy (With campus of Rennes)

The Specialized Master's Degree in Circular Economy integrates all the knowledge, methods and tools necessary to innovate:

  • Limiting the impact on the environment.

  • Improving the financial and social performance of the structure.

  • With an eco-efficiency objective, i.e., combining eco-efficiency and relevance.

  • By integrating into a territorial logic.


  • Develop innovative processes, products or services related to territorial issues.

  • Study the feasibility of an industrial and territorial ecology project, define the adapted methodologies and technical tools.

  • Supervise and coordinate an eco-efficient project and a multidisciplinary team.

Duration: 12 to 18 months

BSc + MSc in Agronomy and Agro-industry


  • Developing high technical, agronomic and environmental performance agriculture.

  • Creating innovative food products while optimizing manufacturing processes.

  • Conserving natural resources (biodiversity, water, soil).

  •  Managing companies by integrating risk management.

Duration: 5 years

BSc + MSc Agro & food Engineering (i-SAFE)


  • Develop highly sustainable agriculture; create innovative agri-food products; preserve natural resources; manage companies by integrating CSR.

  • An innovative pedagogy (seminar, reverse class, workshop, field and especially learning by searching and doing!) and small classes.

  • Dedicated infrastructures: experimental greenhouses, high-tech laboratories, innovation center (AgroRtech, AgriLab), experimental modules (Vertical Farming, FarmBot, Aquaponie...).

Research Units





AGHYLE (Agro-ecology, Hydrogeochemistry, Environments & Resources - UP 2018.C101)

The AGHYLE unit is interested in understanding the interrelationships between management practices/soil condition/plant diversity and the consequences of these interactions on the dynamics of elements and plant quality.

B2R (Bassins Réservoirs Ressources - URR 7511)


The B2R research unit (UniLaSalle - UPJV) studies the evolution of sedimentary basins, reservoirs and sources of fossil and renewable energy (hydrocarbons, geothermal energy, water).


The CYCLANN research and engineering cluster focuses on environmental engineering and science, water and effluent quality, effluent and waste treatment and environmental assessment.

INTERACT (Innovation, Territory, Agriculture & Agribusiness, Knowledge and Technology - UP 2018.C102)

The research unit's work aims to better understand the innovation processes of agriculture, agribusiness and agro-industry as well as their conditions for success.

Transformations & Agro-resources (ULR 7519)

The Transformations & Agro-resources unit works on the transformation and valorization of the whole plant in a sustainable development perspective. The work is based on an integrated scientific approach covering the entire agro-resource transformation chain, from the study of the mechanisms of their construction to the study of their properties and functionalities during their final use, whether for food and/or non-food purposes.

SYMADE (SYstèmes et MAîtrise de l'Energie)

The SYMADE team works on the design and optimization of multi-physics technological systems, including digital twins, for the use of energy (consumption, generation and storage) for the industry of the future, through 2 axes: the control of industrial systems with the Internet of Industrial Objects (IIoT) and electrical energy systems whose performance depends on the intrinsic characteristics of materials, control and environment.
