Training summary

The agri-food specialty trains engineers capable of intervening at all stages of the production chain. It prepares them to supervise, direct and carry out engineering work that meets the tastes and needs of consumers while taking into account the major current economic, food and ethical issues (eco-design, nutrition, food safety).

Training aims

The objective of the training is to train engineers in the agri-food industry.

Advantages of the training

Expertise in food and nutritional security in an intertropical context

Targeted skills

Trained engineers will be able to:

  • Innovate on products and processes by integrating the cultural, economic and managerial dimensions of companies

  • Design an entire agri-food production unit project and organize and manage production

  • Lead innovation projects on food and nutritional security in tropical environments

  • Conduct analysis and control studies, HACCP “Hazard analysis and critical control points”

Summary of lessons by course

The entire training includes around ten teaching subjects structured around practical work, interdisciplinary projects and 11 months of internship, including at least 4 months abroad.
A semester of academic mobility outside Reunion Island is integrated into the course, with one of our institutional partners. These partnerships allow engineering students to benefit from all the possibilities offered by mobility programs and to complete their training with personalized content.

Depending on their professional project, engineering students can follow a specialization training of their choice, within the École Supérieure d'Ingénieurs Réunion Océan Allemand (ESIROI) or by being integrated into the Agrosup Dijon promotion for the last year.

The partnership with AgroSup Dijon allows ESIROI engineering students to benefit from all the possibilities offered by the University of Burgundy campus, and also gives the possibility of following the Master's degree at the University of Burgundy, in parallel with the final year, which allows ESIROI engineering students to open the way to continuing their studies in a doctoral thesis.
