MSc Agricultural & Food Data Management

The Master of Science "Agricultural & Food Data Management" is at the interface between High Technology and Agriculture & Food. It ranges from the processing of data retrieved by connected objects such as drones, satellites, tablets, telephones, data on the behavior of actors in a sector, to the management and analysis of massive data for decision support.

By 2020, Big Data will revolutionize business, whether in management, research & development or marketing. The very rapid development of digital technology is leading to the development of a new activity for agriculture and requires new skills. The objective of the Master of Science is to train Data Scientists for the agriculture and food industry.
