Bridging courses
Graduates with bachelor's degrees in Biology, Food Science and Technology, Food Engineering, Industrial Technologies or Environmental Engineering must complete 4 credits in Fundamentals of Polymers.

For candidates with other degrees, the academic committee of the master's degree will evaluate the need for bridging courses, up to a maximum of 12 ECTS credits, so as to bring candidates' capacities, knowledge and aptitudes up to speed.

The bridging courses required are subjects taught on the school's bachelor's degrees. The number of credits and subjects to be taken vary depending on candidates' academic backgrounds as demonstrated by their particular academic record.

Although the bridging courses consist in passing bachelor's degree subjects, they are considered master's degree credits as regards public fees. Bridging courses may be taken at the same time as the master's degree.
