The School
of Biotechnology


Sup’Biotech’s unique curriculum combines science and engineering coursework with management skills and industry specific technical knowledge, preparing students for dynamic careers in research, management, and communication roles. Our graduates possess not only the expertise needed in STEM-based careers, but the interpersonal and management skills to effectively deliver their message.
Students come from around the world to study in English, go on our cultural trips, and befriend other students from different cultures in an experience often described by participants as “unforgettable”. Our students also learn about the domestic and international biotechnology markets. Sup’Biotech’s professors come from diverse training and educational backgrounds, such as universities, research centers and industry.
Sup’Biotech’s students are prepared for a wide range of responsibilities in various biotechnology and international corporations, working in the fields of health, cosmetics, environment, pharmaceuticals and agribusiness.


Stem Cells
& Genetic

This program is intended to give students a broad introduction to the exciting field of disease modeling using stem cells. Students will explore what make stem cells unique, with a specific focus on their characterization and their function.

They will extend their knowledge to include an introduction to the more specialized area of genome editing (CRISPR-Cas9). This course is an excellent way to dive deeply into disease modeling for students who are interested in the medical fields or stem cell research.

Program postponed to July 2021


The 200-billion-euro cosmetics industry is
driven by innovation, quality, and results.  Consumers that are increasingly aware of
what they are buying have provoked a  strategy change by cosmetics businesses to respond to changing customer expectations.

Sup’Biotech believes that addressing this change will require both scientific and
marketing expertise, and we are well-placed to provide this knowledge to students.
Participants in the Cosmetics Product Development course will develop a product
prototype for a target market that addresses a specific skin-based need, perform extensive
market research, and develop a hypothetical commercialization approach to a new dermo-cosmetics product.

Program postponed to July 2021

Food Science

New food products are developed and tested every day, then brought to market by companies that have spent millions on R&D. This program has been designed to help our students intimately understand this process. Students will perform food science-related lab work and develop food products, culminating in a project that combines product design with business and marketing concepts.

Lab work is coupled with market research and business implementation to give students a realistic look at the food science industries.

Program postponed to July 2021

Water & Soil
Pollution :

This program is designed for Environment oriented Biotechnology students willing to have a great impact on a cleaner world.

After Studying the State of the art of water and soil pollution, students will develop innovative biotechnological remediation solutions.

Field trips, company visits, professional conferences, as well as social and cultural activities will bring them to another level of expertise. Come up with new ideas to protect our resources!

Program postponed to July 2021
