PM3F is a 2 years integrated specific curriculum of a Master of Science in Process and Bioprocess Engineering accredited by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research. This MSc involves 2 other curriculums, PM3E and MBE and is jointly developed by Oniris1, IMT Atlantique2 and Polytech Nantes3 on the strength of their common Research Unit GEPEA4.
All three of them are accredited by the Commission des Titres d'Ingénieur (CTI), the French institution which awards engineering degrees.
is to train the future project leaders or supervisors capable of managing complex and innovative engineering projects in the domain of Food Process Engineering and Food Production, with strong skills and concerns in environment and energy efficiency within an international context.
and combines Scientific and Technical projects and also Management courses.
The first two semesters are common with the PM3E MSc and take place at IMTA, which offers a balanced program of basics in engineering sciences, management, process engineering, modeling and control, with a large focus on environmental issues.
The third (academic) and fourth (master thesis) semesters constitute the PM3F specialty and take place at Oniris-Graduate School of Food Sciences and Engineering – France, where emphasis is given to innovation in food processing, with large concerns in energy efficiency and process control.
A significant part of the 1st year program is also devoted to social sciences for project managers, whereas a significant part of the 2nd year program brings to the students mandatory basics in food science, food engineering and food safety.
Oniris and IMTA established close relationships with industries.
Free French language classes, rooms available in both campuses (Oniris and IMTA), scholarships opportunities, possibility to continue in PhD…
a strong scientific background and technical knowledge in environmental and energy processes
A good know-how in process modelling and simulation, especially in Food Processes
Cross-disciplinary management skills essential to set up and pilot projects in an international context
A significant grounding of social sciences for engineers
Lecturers from French, European and non-European universities
Lecturers from Academia and Industry
1st year / University of Hong Kong (China), Queens University (Canada), Heriot-Watt University (United Kingdom), KTH (Sweden), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (U.S.A.), Indian Institute of Technology (India), University of Compiégne (France), IMTA
2nd year / University of Sao Paulo (Brazil), Grove City College (PA, USA), University College Dublin (Ireland), Oniris
After completion of the program, PM3F graduates can find career opportunities in close connection with industry, in fields such as food and related industries, equipment suppliers and manufacturers, technical research offices, engineering firms.
PM3F graduates have the possibility of doing a PhD and pursuing a career in research and development.
A committee consisting of professors is charged of selecting the applicants, based on the following criteria :
