The Master's degree in Health Engineering is a coherent course of study at Bac + 5 level, organised around :
- A solid foundation of basic scientific knowledge, guaranteeing the adaptability of graduates and their ability to develop their career in the company.
- A multidisciplinary approach that enables each student to understand and interact with other specialists in a project team.
- Specialisation in a particular pathway and mastery of project management, applied to the pathway, enable graduates to become operational quickly by knowing how to combine skills and strategic aspects, regulatory constraints, and human or financial impacts. This multifactorial approach is the subject of tutorials and team 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 enables the rapid integration of our young graduates.
The Master 2 can be done as an apprenticeship.
