From October 2 to October 6, 2017, ESA was in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, visiting Seifullin Kazakh Agroengineering University, and met students in their 4th year of studies in the fields of Food Technology and Animal Productions.
ESA is the largest institute of higher education for life sciences in France. It offers a wide range of courses in 10 major sectors of activity : agriculture, food processing, landscape management, environment, horticulture, viticulture, traditional products, retailing, trade, agribusiness management.
ESA’s historic building will be converted into a venue for students in 2018, incorporating a language resource centre.
Organised by ESA and the researchers from the Changes in Agriculture Chair, the “smart rural” events – #esaconnect – are an opportunity to analyse from a sociological and economic angle the changes that are taking place in the professions and trades, and the new forms of collaboration and cooperation in agriculture involving the use of digital media.
Sensorial analysis uses man and his senses to characterise a product, over and above instrumental measurements. Consumer testing allows the appreciation of individuals to be gathered and is today an indispensable tool in the agri-food sector. ESA in Angers has understood that for a long time and it has developed a sensory analysis platform, Senso’Veg, which is without any competition at the local level and has an established reputation.
It can be difficult when you are in secondary school to know what you want to study after secondary school. Well, what better way than to get a hands-on experience of the life of a student! And that’s what ESA offers secondary school students with the 4th edition of the operation “Live the life of an ESA student engineer”.
For the fifth consecutive year, the greater Angers Loire area and the town of Angers have called on students in the region to participate in the “Jardins d’expressions” project. They have been invited to become involved in this year’s theme, “Jardins en voyage” (journey through the gardens), and show creativity.
