Spend 5 weeks in Lyon on a program designed for students in science and engineering with tracks in Agroecology and Chemistry.  Students take a technical course (taught in English) related to their major and then join the larger group for French courses, cultural visits and industry outings. 

The Agroecology track, offered by ISARA Lyon (an agricultural engineering school), is open to students in Agriculture or Sustainability-related majors or minors. With an emphasis on field studies and project work, the program provides hands-on opportunities for students to explore applying agroecology practices, managing biodiversity and diversifying food systems. 

The Chemistry track, offered by CPE (an engineering school), is open to students in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering related fields.  The practical course is a hand-on laboratory based class focusing Analytical Chemistry and Chemical Engineering with an emphasis also on calculations and reporting of results.
