The project

The Institut Universitaire de Technologie in Chalon-sur-Saône, Vesoul Agro Campus and Agrosup Dijon in France, the Institute ofTechnology TRALEE in Ireland as well as the University of Bologna in Italy  are developing a one year international postgraduate programme in agricultural machinery.

The main objective is to equip students with highly specialized competences and solid transversal skills all embedded in an international dimension.

Students will originate from the French Bachelor degree in Agriculture Equipment or a B.Sc in Agricultural Mechanization. They will have skills in agriculture, mechanical engineering, Agriculture Equipment science and techniques.

Students will move across the three countries rotating each quarter in one of the Partner Institutions, including a 3  months internship experience.

At the end of the programme they will get the necessary professional qualifications for playing important roles in the main industries operating in the sector.
