Option Bio-engineering and nanotechnology

Director: Emmanuelle LAURENCEAU, Virginie MONNIER-VILLAUME
130 hTD


This option aims to provide a multi-disciplinary training in chemistry-biology-physics to engineering students to understand the recent and future applications in bio-engineering (or life sciences engineering) and nanotechnologies. The skills acquired during the 2-year generalist engineering curriculum will be completed by fundamental knowledge in micro- and opto-electronics, in photonics, in nanoscience and in biology. The interaction between these different disciplines will be illustrated through various examples: microsensors, functional materials, systems on chips, medical imaging, biomateriels, big data,... The engineering students issued from this training will be main contacts to lead projects at the interface of these different disciplines.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the challenges linked to health and nanotechnologies.
  • Acquired knowledge in biology and nanotechnologies.
  • Understand the challenges of miniaturization.
  • Applied knowledge to the resolution of multidisciplinary problems.
  • Set up multidisciplinary projects.
