Master in Agriculture and Bio-industries SAIV (120 credits, 2 years)

The SAIV master is an interuniversity master which has two specialities:


AFEPA - Agricultural, Food and Environmental Policy Analysis

The master in Agriculture and Bio-industries develops the capacity to:

  • analyse and assess agricultural problems;
  • understand processes on diverse scales and in a multidisciplinary way;
  • manage integrated projects in collaboration with other experts.

It educates graduates who can think critically about and make use of a body of knowledge and know-how in agricultural sciences and economics for the purpose of formulating, analysing and solving a problem of a multidisciplinary nature.

Upon completing the master’s programme, you will be able to :

  • design innovative technological and scientific solutions for developing products, process systems or services relevant to the field;
  • communicate, converse and present arguments in French and English;
  • develop socially responsible professional practices and address social issues;
  • design relevant technological and scientific solutions.

The master’s programme imparts basic knowledge and skills and offers course options at UCL and a partner university.
