SML Master’s degree


It ensures the coordination of the biotechnology training offer in the Breton perimeter, bringing the training offer in line with the current structure of research. The training is co-accredited by UBO and UBS and carried out in partnership with the Roscoff Biological Station and the University of Nantes. The multidisciplinary teaching team is based on a strong training-research link, an international visibility of the teacher-researchers involved, and the participation of professionals. The objective of pathways 1 to 4 is immediate professional integration.

This Master’s degree brings the general knowledge and methodologies necessary for the biotechnological development of biological resources, while knowing the business world, the regulatory framework, but also the English necessary for commercial and professional exchanges.

Learning path

The Master’s degree includes 4 courses carried by the UBO (P1) and by the UBS (P2-4), with a local M1 UBS allowing access to the M2 P1-3 and an M1 UBS relocated to the Catholic Institute of West North Brittany (ICO BN) specific to P4 (annex 1).
