Presentation

The Master's degree in Health Engineering is a coherent curriculum at the Bac + 5 level, organized around :
- A solid foundation of basic scientific knowledge, guaranteeing the adaptability of graduates and their ability to develop their careers in the company.
- A multidisciplinary approach that allows each student to understand and interact with other specialists in a project team.
- Specialization in a particular field and mastery of project management, applied to the field, enable graduates to be operational quickly by knowing how to combine competence and strategic aspects, regulatory constraints, human or financial impacts. This multifactorial approach is the subject of tutorials and teamwork projects. This is one of the pillars of the training, which is consolidated during the numerous internships (in M1, a 5-month internship and in M2, a 6-month internship) and which then allows for the rapid integration of our young graduates.
The Master's program can be completed on a sandwich basis (through an apprenticeship or a professional contract).
