Sup'Biotech is a private biotechnological engineering school located in the Paris metropolitan area. Sup'Biotech students do engineering and science coursework including lectures, laboratory work, and long-term creative projects. Unlike at many other STEM-oriented schools, Sup'Biotech also emphasizes industry know-how and offers a truly preprofessional curriculum. Sup'Biotech's graduates get recruited by top firms in the biotech sector such as L'Oreal, Sanofi, Watchfrog, Nestlé, and countless others. Virtually all Sup'Biotech graduates find employment or go on to higher studies, and Sup'Biotech's unique mix of science and managerial skills is extremely valuable to employers of all kinds.
We offer undergraduate, graduate, study abroad, and summer program courses for international students. Students can begin at years 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5; first and second year courses are either taught in English or in French while the third, fourth and fifth years are conducted in English. Graduates gain quick access to senior positions both in France and abroad in such fields as health and pharmaceuticals, food-processing innovation, cosmetics, bioinformatics, or the environment. The program is constructed around the model of French Schools of Engineering accredited by the CTI: the Foundation cycle (2 years), followed by the Engineering cycle (3 years).
Sup’Biotech’s curriculum is a multidisciplinary balance between science and engineering coursework (lectures, practical laboratory work, and projects), management skills, industrial know-how. Our students also learn about the domestic and international biotechnology markets. Sup’Biotech’s professors come from diverse training and educational backgrounds, such as universities, research centers, and industry. English is used throughout our program; our graduate courses are taught in English, and classes are available exclusively in English from the third year onwards. Sup’Biotech’s students are prepared for a wide range of responsibilities in various biotechnology and international corporations, working in fields such as health, cosmetics, the environment, pharmaceuticals, and agribusiness.
As mentioned above, Sup’Biotech’s five-year program includes two degree programs that correspond to the new European standards. Our three-year undergraduate program leads to a Bachelor’s degree from Sup’Biotech. In our graduate program, students choose an option such as Research and Development, Production, or Sales and Marketing. Upon completion of our two-year graduate program, students are awarded an Engineering Diploma in Biotechnology, equivalent to a Master's degree.
