SML Master’s degree

Biology

This specialization is made in co-accreditation between the UBO and Agrocampus-Ouest (Rennes site). The BEE speciality is attached to IUEM – Université de Bretagne Occidentale and mainly to the Laboratory of Marine Environmental Sciences (LEMAR/UBO-CNRS-IRD-IFREMER) and the Laboratory of Microbiology of Extreme Environments (LM2E/UBO-CNRS-IFREMER). The specialization also refers to the multidisciplinary centre of competence in the field of marine and coastal sciences existing in Brest and in particular to Ifremer, which is a key partner in the training offer.

The degree responds to a strong demand for excellence in training through fundamental and applied research in the fields of the study of marine ecosystems (route 1), in the biology of marine organisms (path 2), and in the field of management through an ecosystem approach to fisheries resources and aquatic environments (path 3).

The objective is to prepare young doctoral scientists, representing 2/3 of the students, with a specialization in marine biological sciences and the link with environmental issues related to the evolution of the oceans. The training also leads 1/3 of the students to research careers related to the professional fields of marine biology, to which are added for the third course new professional opportunities within the organizations in charge of the upstream part of the fisheries and aquaculture sector.

Learning path

Marine Ecosystems

The holders of this diploma are professionals who can be in charge of:

  • carry out studies and supervise projects in the field of the marine environment (alteration, preservation, change)
  • contribute to the dissemination of knowledge (reports, studies or surveys), inform and train various audiences (training audiences, political decision-makers, business leaders, etc.) in the field of the marine environment
  • carry out diagnoses and provide advice to different types of interlocutors in the field of the marine environment
  • ensure communication around a project or on a specific subject

Fisheries and Aquaculture Sciences

This course trains future scientists in the perspective of ecosystem-based management of living resources and marine environments.

They have high-level expertise in their scientific fields of reference to conduct diagnoses and act in a relevant manner in complex situations and systems, both scientifically and in terms of the methods to be used and the diversity of interactions to be taken into account.

They are at the level of scientific research but are also able to translate their findings into a situation of advice and project support. They implement relevant and innovative techniques in complex environments to act on territories and environments based on context and demand analysis. They conduct experimental work.

International Master of science in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea)

The International Master in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea) is a joint Master’s programme organised by ten leading European universities in the field of marine sciences. IMBRSea covers a wide range of topics related to the sustainable use of marine living resources. By focusing on marine biological and ecological processes, the programme links the biology of marine organisms to environmental studies and marine policy and planning topics:

  • University of Ghent (BE)
  • Sorbonne University (FR)
  • University of Algarve (PT)
  • University of Oviedo (ES)
  • Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (IE)
  • University of the Basque Country (ES)
  • Marche Polytechnic University (IT)
  • University of Bergen (NO)
  • Université Bretagne Occidentale (FR)
  • Université de Côte d’Azur (FR) (NEW)

The program is also supported by fourteen marine research institutes belonging to the European Centre for Marine Biological Resources (EMBRC) and other associated partners.
