We supervise around 30 students and teach approximately 1000 class periods each year.

Graduate schools

  • Graduate school SIBAGHE, University of Montpellier, co-accredited with Montpellier SupAgro for Agricultural and environmental sciences
  • Graduate school ED-SEV (Life, health and environmental sciences, University Cheickh Anta Diop (UCAD), Dakar

French universities

Montpellier SupAgro

  • 3 assistant lecturers

S. Kreiter, J.F. Martin and M.S. Tixier belong to department "Biologiy and ecology" managed by M.S. Tixier.

Teachings include the following disciplines: population biology, population genetics, biocomputing and systematics. They fit into the scope of plant protection.

These courses are delivered in the agricultural engineer program, within the Master's degree "Agronomy and food-processing", in business licenses and the "Agricultural engineer of the South" program.
