Aims

The Bordeaux Biology AgroSciences Master (B2AS) Master offers a strong research based training combined with rapid professional immersion into preparation for careers in six major plant sectors :

The B2AS Master is part of the University of Bordeaux Master program and is developed with the support of the French National Institute for Agronomy (INRA) and the Bordeaux AgroScience Engineering School.
 
Plant production and plant processing require interdisciplinary studies with close to the very latest research and training in academic laboratories and/or plant production/processing industries.
 
The Bordeaux Biology AgroSciences Master aims to prepare students for PhD programs and careers in food and agronomy industries in an international context by providing training that aims to develop advanced knowledge and competencies in plant sciences in addition to relevant management and business knowledge and competencies for graduate students.
 
The Biology AgroSciences Master at Bordeaux University, will allow you to develop the competencies required to transform rapidly changing scientific knowledge into meaningful, sustainable solutions (products or services). The training is research-based and associates theoretical scientific knowledge with laboratory practices through individual and groups activities, as well as internships in research labs or in industrial contexts.
 
 Career opportunities in the following industrial sectors are available to graduate students of the Bordeaux Biology AgroSciences program, in both R&D laboratories and production activities. 
  • Plant research laboratories
  • Plant breeding companies
  • Agro-chemical companies
