The JUNIA-ISA program trains engineers in agriculture, the environment, the food industry and agricultural business.

The JUNIA-ISA program has as a main aim to train bioengineers for the planet and life sciences in general, with high human skills and a certain level of entrepreneurship. Sustainable development, environmental impacts of all human and industrial activities are the core base of differents courses and corporate social and environmental responsability are taught in specific teaching modules.


The training of JUNIA-ISA engineers runs over a period of 5 years. An internship each year (except 4th year). Finally, between the 2nd and 3rd years, the students must do a gap of 5 months (students who are weak in English are required to go to an English-speaking country). This gap, which the student must do on his own, is an immersion in the world of work. It is often an opportunity for very rich contacts to be made and for discovering the student’s potential.



Integration rate

3 months after graduation: 85%

Continuation of study

JUNIA-ISA students can after their 5 years curriculum continue with specialised Masters, double degree programs (Master of Science) with a partner university (international) or with a PhD thesis
