Engineering Program – Year 2February 11 2022
International students interested in studying at AgroParisTech as part of a student exchange can participate in the second year of the engineering program (the equivalent of the first year of a traditional master’s degree program). They may come for one of the two semesters or for the entire academic year.
Students must have already completed two years of university-level studies to participate in the exchange program at AgroParisTech as a second-year engineering student (equivalent to the first year of master’s studies).
Learn more about the 2nd year of the Engineering program.
The second year of the Engineering program is the most well suited to students studying abroad, as it involves many elective classes, allowing students to benefit from real flexibility. However, students must prioritize their choice of fields of study, and their first choice is not guaranteed due to the limited number of available spots.
The course offering available in the second-year engineering program for the 2021–2022 academic year is available on SynapseS.
In the first semester, 185 hours are devoted to common core classes in the chosen field of study.
- Field of study 1, Paris: Sustainable development: production, sectors, and territories
- Field of study 2, in Massy: Food, biomolecules, and energy engineering
- Field of study 3, in Paris: Environmental management and engineering
- Field of study 4 in Paris: Engineering and health: people, bioproducts, and the environment
The Nancy center offers specific courses of study:
Field of study 1, in Nancy – “Forestry” curriculum.
Field of study 3, in Nancy – “Managing natural, open, and wooded environments” curriculum.
Many elective teachings units (TUs) are offered in Year 2 (most will be the same in 2022–2023). Download the list of elective units
Students studying abroad are not advised to take AgroParisTech’s core curriculum (SIMM and SESG) due to its difficulty and to the limited number of spaces available.
Some classes may not be available to students studying abroad due to the limited number of spaces available, including common core classes in their field of study.
Students must rank teaching units (TUs) by order of preference, as their first choices may not always be guaranteed.
Second semester language and sports classes start the second-to-last week of January; other classes start in early February.
