Food Product Development
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.
Cultural trips and site visits
The Summer Program is as much about having fun as it is about learning! During the program, students make the most of their time in France by going on a boat tour down the Seine River, visiting a huge indoor waterpark, going to an action adventure park called Koézio, visiting the Palace of Versailles, and spending a day at Disneyland Paris, among other trips. They also visit biotech conferences, a brewery, and other trips designed to show the “application” side of biotechnology.
Included in the program fees are language courses. “Survival French” will be given to students who need to brush up their French skills. Students who already speak French fluently will be given “Advanced French” classes that give a new level of refinement to their spoken and technical French. (2 ECTS credits for language.)
Students live in shared rooms in Paris with host families or in Student apartments (with full access to a kitchen). Sup’Biotech has worked with host families extensively; they ensure students have an insight into French culture and are well-provided for.
Students will receive a certificate granting them the equivalent of 6 ECTS
