A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.
Biological & life sciences is an area of science that studies how different processes, such as chemical, physical, and geological, shape how living organisms interact on earth together. Classes may include ecology, physiology, and evolution.
France is currently among the 20 best performing countries in terms of the economy due to their excellent results-oriented higher education learning. Most of the courses at universities are offered in the French language. France has 60 public and 100 private universities.
Paris is the most populated city in France and its capital. It has over 2 million residents. It plays host to leading centers of learning and the arts in the European region. Being home to the highest number of highly educated persons, Paris has several prestigious universities in France.

Feeding the Planet of sustainable and lasting way be player in agricultural and transitions (energy, environment ...): these are the challenges for engineers in agriculture. [+]
Please Note That this program is Entirely taught in FRENCH
From field to plate, agriculture covers a wide range of industries. This is one of the only engineering business that is interested in microscopic life as the life of human societies. Agriculture, food processing, agro-ecology, agromachinisme are all moving sectors to feed the world in a sustainable and lasting way.
Far from the clichés, agriculture plays an important and leading role in energy and environmental transitions. They are open and functions engaged in the digital transformation. Becoming an engineer in agriculture is to be an actor of this upheaval, at the heart of global issues. This is contributing to the development of innovative solutions for efficient and responsible farming. It is choosing a trade to invent the future.... [-]

The Erasmus Mundus Master Programme in Plant Breeding (emPLANT) designed by 5 leading European universities is focused on plant improvement and the creation of new plant varieties. In a climate of increasing global demand for both food and non-food agricultural production, and a quest for sustainable growth in agricultural productivity, emPLANT addresses these challenges via plant genetics and improvement. [+]
In its report entitled "World Agriculture: towards 2015/2030", the FAO outlines the need for an approximate 60% increase in agricultural production by 2050, in order to meet the nutritional requirements of the world’s human population. This growth will, in part, be built upon an increase in yields, in particular via the genetic improvement of plants. There have been major advances in this field over the last twenty years, as a result of new molecular and cellular biology technologies reaching far beyond the confines of plant transgenics. In this positive context, plant breeding companies and food manufacturing and various non-food manufacturing companies are expressing a growing need for plant breeders who are able to understand and manage increasingly diverse technologies in order to meet more complex and varied objectives. This burgeoning demand is becoming ever more apparent, in the face of a dwindling number of university courses on offer in this field. What is more, the handful of one-year courses specializing in plant breeding do not cover the entire field of activity of a plant breeder in today’s context.... [-]
The Interdisciplinary Approaches in Life Sciences (AIV) Master of Paris Diderot and Descartes universities is an interdisciplinary two- year program tackling with quantitative approaches on different interfaces with Life Sciences. It aims at training creative and talented students to develop their research in an environment as enriching as the best world graduate programs. [+]
The Interdisciplinary Approaches in Life Sciences (AIV) Master of Paris Diderot and Descartes universities is an interdisciplinary two- year program tackling with quantitative approaches on different interfaces with Life Sciences. It aims at training creative and talented students to develop their research in an environment as enriching as the best world graduate programs. The program is based on learning through research pedagogy – rich with research internships and on collaborative projects. The program is funded by the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation.
The 1st year of the AIV Master is the first in France to teach systems biology and synthetic biology. The training is focused at the interface of life sciences and physics, mathematics and computer science. Apart from systems and synthetic biology, students discover methods of mathematical modelling, statistical analysis and as well state-of-the-art technologies (fluorescence microscopy, nano-fabrication, molecular forces measurements, etc.) used to quantify the properties of living systems. They also gain skills in scientific communication and may want to participate in external modules to acquire or strengthen a specific knowledge.... [-]
