(Re)invent agriculture for tomorrow!
Why become an engineer in agronomy, agriculture or agri-food?
Faced with environmental, economic and demographic issues and changes in people's expectations, the agricultural and food and non-food processing industries need professionals who are ready to meet the challenges of a sector in transition.
Choosing UniLaSalle's Agronomy and Agro-Industries Engineering program means opting for a curriculum that will give you the keys to
- develop agriculture with high technical, agronomic and environmental performance ;
- create innovative products while optimizing manufacturing processes, in the agri-food industry or in the non-food industry;
- preserve natural resources (biodiversity, water, soil);
- managing companies by integrating risk management.
- Campus: Beauvais or Rouen
- Initial training with student status or with apprentice status / Continuing education leading to a diploma
- Access: after a UniLaSalle pre-engineering cycle or admission on title
- Diploma accredited by the Commission des Titres d'Ingénieur (CTI), Master's degree and European EUR-ACE® label until 2024-2025

The training program
The Agronomy and Agro-industries engineering program is accessible after two years of pre-engineering studies.
It is structured around 4 main stages:
- Go LaSalle, a first international experience from the 1st semester
- 1 semester of common core specialization, to be chosen between :
- agri-food and processing
- 3 semesters in the career path of your choice, including a 4-month "assistant engineer" internship
The last semester of the career path can be spent in a partner university, in France or abroad, as part of an exchange semester, a double-diploma, or a stay for a degree.
- The end-of-studies project, which is based on an internship in a company or a research internship for students, or on the long period in a company for students following an apprenticeship program.
It leads to the writing of a thesis and an oral defense.
Looking for an international career? The Agronomy and Agro-industries engineering program has a 100% English-language option: Agro, Food & Environmental Engineering, taught on our Rouen campus and also accessible directly after the baccalaureate thanks to a pre-engineering cycle in English.
The engineering cycle in Agronomy and Agro-industries includes two internship periods, allowing students to benefit from a 10-month experience in a company, in addition to the 4 weeks of internship of the pre-engineering cycle.
The assistant engineer internship (4 months)
Carried out at the end of the 2nd year of the engineering cycle, the assistant engineer internship consists of carrying out technical and operational missions within a company or an institutional organization.
The student is placed in a situation of autonomy: he/she becomes familiar with the problematic of the internship, is confronted with professional practice (ability to adapt, sense of analysis, rigor in the execution of tasks, interpersonal skills), with a view to developing his/her personal and professional skills.
The following will be taken into account in the evaluation of this internship
- the approach taken in the search for the internship,
- the ability to adapt (methods, tools, internal processes)
- the ability to step back from the work that was done during the internship.
The end-of-studies internship (6 months)
The final point and determining period of the engineering training at UniLaSalle, the end-of-studies internship enables the student to experience a pre-professional situation in which he or she will have to respond to a problem posed by an organization. It is an essential piece of work which closes the curriculum and allows the jury to decide on the awarding of the engineering diploma.
It allows the student to :
- become familiar with professional practice,
- develop personally and professionally,
- showcase their skills,
- facilitate their integration into the profession.
The student/apprentice validates certain notions acquired in the academic context; he/she understands their meaning, scope and limits. The student/apprentice also has the opportunity to develop management skills, listening, communication and teamwork skills. They carry out concrete projects. The professional practice provides valuable expertise to the student/apprentice at the beginning of his or her career.
This internship leads to the writing and oral defense of the final thesis.
The Agronomy and Agro-Industries engineering program is enriched by at least one compulsory 4-month stay abroad via the Go-LaSalle program. This stay at a Lasallian university is replaced by courses and an 8-week internship abroad for students entering the 1st year of the engineering cycle via parallel admission.
The student can add a second international experience in the last year of the engineering cycle, in the form of a semester, a double-diploma or a stay leading to a diploma at a partner university.
Take advantage of your first international experience through the Go-LaSalle program!
20 partner universities of the Lasallian network located in the four corners of the world welcome you during the 1st semester of the engineering cycle to enable you to discover another study context.
Dual degree and diploma stays
Longer than a simple semester of study, the diploma stay and the double degree constitute an experience :
- within a university with which UniLaSalle has an agreement or a university without an agreement or partnership (on the student's proposal)
- allows students to obtain 2 diplomas: that of the host university and that of UniLaSalle
- from 12 to 24 months depending on the host university
- Imperial College London (United Kingdom)
- Cranfield University (United Kingdom)
- Wageningen University (Netherlands)
- Universitat de Barcelona (Spain)
- University of Quebec at Chicoutimi (Canada)
10 professional courses
You can enter the engineering cycle in Agronomy :
- by validating the UniLaSalle pre-engineering cycle
- via an admission on title after a BTS, a BUT, a licence 3 or a CPGE preparatory course (BCPST,...)
- via the Ingéni'Up competitive examination after a PC preparatory course
