Training - Graduate School

The #DigitAg Graduate School brings together more than twenty courses offered by the University of Montpellier, Institut-Agro Montpellier SupAgro and AgroParisTech, to train tomorrow's researchers and engineers in the fields essential to digital agriculture and to expand internationally, particularly to the South. Its two main missions are to support the creation of new training programmes, both initial and short, and to promote links between masters and theses and public research and business.

The Graduate School of Digital Agriculture coordinates existing and future courses and is involved in the accreditation and funding of masters and theses. It stimulates new pedagogical practices by developing a culture of pedagogy, methods and initiatives, the creation of meeting places; it creates a community of learners and trainers (developing a #DigitAg culture and dedicated tools); it coordinates with MUSE (Montpellier University of Excellence), the EURs and the international community (shared training). Objectives: renew the master's programmes and double the flow of doctoral students on #DigitAg subjects.

In Montpellier, 700 students* are trained in programmes in disciplines and methods that can contribute to digital agriculture, in the 20 Master's or specialised Master's programmes of the Graduate School, delivered by the University of Montpellier, Agro-Montpellier SupAgro Institute and AgroParisTech - Montpellier site).

  • These courses cover various disciplines: life and earth sciences (agronomy), engineering sciences, computer science, management and law. Interdisciplinarity, research contributions, and close links with innovative companies characterise the high-level offer of these courses.
  • Some programmes are also open to continuing education.
