Licence Frontières du Vivant

Center for Research and Interdisciplinary (CRI)
Campus Full time 3 years September 2017 France Paris

The undergraduate program “Frontiers in Life Science” was created in 2011 as interdisciplinary life science program, based on innovative pedagogical methods and learning through research. It received the MCE Awards for “innovative pedagogy” [+]

A new bachelor program at Paris Descartes The bachelor program Frontiers in Life Science at the University Paris Descartes welcomed its first class of students in September 2011, to learn in a unique and exceptional environment, with interdisciplinary approaches to science and innovative pedagogy. Quoted by the newspaper Le Monde, Research and The Ministry of higher education and research (video) the FDV bachelor is having a successful growth and will increase its number of students to meet the demands.” An interdisciplinary scientific bachelor program The “Frontiers in Life Science” program offers a general interdisciplinary science training. Its first aim is to provide students with a strong science culture in several disciplines (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, computer science, philosophy of science) with balanced workload between all of these diverse disciplines. In addition to a vast scientific background, the students develop their individual profiles through career counseling and choices of projects and internships, and prepare themselves for future studies. Learning through research The “Frontiers in Life Science” program leaves plenty of room for project-based learning and exploration of various professional backgrounds (laboratories, private companies, associations …) Over the period of three years, students are expected to take more and more responsibilities and autonomy in their projects. Learning through research methodology allows students to gain skills such as : Critical thinking Creativity and development of new tools Organizing and analyzing information Teamwork and leadership Visual and verbal communication ( text, web page, videos …) Our goal is to dedicate as much time and energy to development of skills, as to the acquisition of knowledge. Each year, several weeks are devoted to immersion in the world of research (laboratory training), a reflection on science communities and study of interdisciplinary approaches. Through several intensive courses, students have the opportunity to experience a different learning environment and focus on emerging perspectives. During their first year, students will have completed : One week of initiation to research with many group activities and collaboration, discovering the steps of scientific inquiry and experimental approaches. A short internship within the course « Professional development and career planning » One week intensive interdisciplinary course, focused on hands-on activities (experiments and modeling), and ending with a one-day research project. An optional longer internship at the end of second semester During their second year, students will have completed : Two weeks of project-based learning where each student conducts its own research project, from the initial development of the idea, over experimental design and data acquisition, to data analysis and presentation of results. A group research project during the second semester, where students develop their teamwork and leadership skills, learn to manage time and expenses, critically analyze their data and present their results in a scientific manner Personalized education Students from the “Frontiers in Life Science” program benefit from the advantage to study in a small group (20-30 students per class) and a personalized support. In addition to teachers, students are supervised by tutors. These tutors are Master or PhD students, but also professionals with a scientific training, which help the students in choosing their future careers and advise them on emerging opportunities or alert them if specific skills need to be developed. Support and perspectives The Fondation Bettencourt Schueller supports the “Frontiers in Life Science” program and its innovative educational activities. The generous support allows us to host the students, their supervisors and visiting professors in the heart of Paris, at the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI). Physical space of the CRI is dedicated and organized in a way to maximize the exchanges between disciplines and students and researchers of all levels. The “Frontiers in Life Science” program is a pilot project of the University Paris Descartes, an original program within the Center for Research and Higher Education (PRES) Sorbonne Paris Cité. We hope this pilot project will serve as a model for future university programs wishing to implement innovative approaches. PROGRAM SCIENTIFIC CONTENT Bachelor program “Frontiers in Life Science” should not be seen as a degree program in biology, but as an interdisciplinary training for students who are curious about science in general. Even though the living world is at the heart of the studied systems, the teaching is balanced between biology, physics, chemistry, mathematics and computer science. ORGANIZATION OF SEMESTERS In the first year, the two weeks of immersion enable the students to familiarize themselves with the program, to get to know the teaching staff and other students. The choice of learning topics is fixed, so that all students obtain the basic knowledge from the main core, including the basics of mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biology and science methodology and philosophy. In the second year, students have more flexibility in choosing the subjects according to their interests, and project-based learning becomes more important. Just as in the first year, learning is organized around themes and approached in an interdisciplinary manner. The last year of studies is not a classical specialization year: we offer the students a possibility to explore new interests or deepen their existing interests through a semester of studies in a French or foreign partner institution, and through a semester-long internship. To prepare their third year, the students are offered help with career choice options, their scientific interests, and guided through the admission process in our partner institutions. During the third year, students have regular progress reports, where they discuss their projects with their peers, in person and via teleconferencing if they are abroad. The third year ends with a final get-together, where each student presents their experience in front of their peers and teachers. Semester 1/ Observing and describing life, matter, motion Semester 2/ Stability and change in living systems Semester 3/ Living world and bio-inspired systems Semester 4/ Interactions and communication Semester 5/ Specialization (in a partner institution) Semester 6/ Practice ( pre-placement orientation, internship, restitution) [-]

All lectures, classes and projects are conducted entirely in English. The main objective of studies in English is to educate future engineers who, while gaining in-depth professional knowledge of their fields of study, will also develop excellent linguistic competence in ESP and Business English. The University collaborates with many EU higher education institutions and students are given the opportunity to study for one semester at any of the selected foreign academic centres (it is so-called mobility semester, i.e. a semester of studying in one of European universities financed by the LLP-Erasmus programme). The studies take place in a two-level system – I degree and II degree studies (Bachelor level and Master level studies). According to the declared specialization of study, prospective students should apply to the Faculty which runs the particular specialization. Faculty of Environmental Engineering and Biotechnology The origins of the Faculty of Environmental Engineering and Biotechnology date back to the year 1975 when the Institute of Civil Engineering, with rights equal to those of a faculty, was established. Then, in 1984 the Institute was replaced by the Faculty of Civil Engineering, with the Institute of Environmental Engineering being its part. The name of the Faculty was changed again in 1992 into the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Protection. In January 1997 the Institute of Environmental Protection was separated from the Faculty as a basic unit with full academic rights. In August of the same year, the Institute of Environmental Protection was transformed into the Faculty of Environmental Protection and Engineering. The Faculty was given the right to confer the PhD title in the field of Environmental Engineering in 1998. Four years later, the Faculty obtained the right to confer postdoctoral degrees in the same field. In 2002 full-time PhD studies in Environmental Protection were introduced. Finally in 2012 new name was given by the Senate: "Faculty of Environmental Engineering and Biotechnology" At present, students can choose from Environmental Engineering, Environmental Protection and Power Engineering study modules, which have been offered since 1975, 1999 and 2008 respectively. The students are supported by a range of state-of-the-art facilities that comprise specialised laboratories with unique scientific equipment as well as modern computer rooms, which enhances the educational process and makes it more effective. The graduates of the Faculty are well prepared to take up responsible positions in different sectors of the economy, especially in public utilities, (the water board and sewage systems). Opportunities are also available in power industries, construction companies, infrastructure, and environmental protection departments of public institutions. Within the framework of the disciplines taught at the Faculty, research is conducted on heating, ventilation and atmosphere protection , sewage biotechnology and waste utilization, energy engineering, water supply and sewage engineering. Within the framework of two main disciplines, research is carried out into effective technologies of energy production, conversion and storage as well as its renewable sources, advanced technologies and other highly effective environmental protection technologies. Within the main research areas special attention is given to sewage sludge treatment and management, autothermal fuel upgrading as well as water, sewage and soil purification technologies. The Institute of Environmental Engineering is a member of Advanced Technologies Centre – "Energia-Środowisko-Zdrowie" - whose activities focus on technologies for the power industry (combustion and thermal utilization of waste), environmental protection (biochemical engineering) as well as for health protection (bioengineering, biotechnology). The Department of Chemistry, Water and Sewage Technology is a member and co-founder of the international scientific net named "Pathways of pollutants and mitigation strategies of their impact on the ecosystems" and it currently has nineteen members from seven countries. In 2008 the Department of Heating, Ventilation and Air Protection joined the EU-supported project in the NORWEGIAN FINANCIAL MECHANISM. There is also a continuous cooperation with Foster Wheller Energia OY (Finland), with whom an earlier project "Leonardo da Vinci – Modern Power Engineering Technologies" was run. For ten years, under the patronage of Polish Academy of Science, the Faculty has been publishing a well-known and highly valued quarterly of a national range "Engineering and Environmental Protection" It publishes articles in both Polish and English. In order to meet the demands of the economy, the Faculty offers a wide range of scientific research and services. Professional help includes e.g. opinion and technological consultancy services in functioning and modernization of water and sewage purification plants as well as purification of waste water from refuse dumps. Research studies concerning the evaluation of degraded areas, the influence on the environment and a review of technologies which are used to rehabilitate such areas, are carried out as well. The faculty staff conduct emission measurements of polluted water and air from industrial plants and public utilities. It also develops programmes of industrial and public utilities management (including dangerous waste) and offers experts' opinions and expertise on ecological issues. Research studies on clean and highly effective combustion technologies, thermal waste utilization as well as integration and utilization of renewable energy (the Sun, biomass) are also conducted. The Faculty offers certification and power engineering audit. [-]
