The Master in Water Sciences training takes place over 4 semesters.  During each year, the lessons are divided between:

  • TUs common to the whole of the Mention (non-disciplinary transversal TUs), allowing the acquisition of skills preparing for integration into the professional environment;

  • specialist teaching units aimed at acquiring in-depth theoretical and practical knowledge

  • internships in companies or research laboratories

The first year of Master(M1) begins with a common core to establish a base of common knowledge for all the students, regardless of the chosen Specialty. It ends with a mandatory internship of a minimum duration of 2 months in a company or laboratory, allowing a first immersion in the professional world.
