Agrocampus Ouest

Agrocampus Ouest is a public institution of higher education in France. Also known as the French School of Agriculture, Food, Horticultural, and Landscape Sciences, the institution was established in 2008 after merging two older institutions—the Agrocampus Rennes and the Institut National d'Horticulture (I.N.H.) in Angers—to be a training and research institute for agricultural engineers. Operating under the French Ministry of Agriculture, it is considered a leading national institution in environmental and life sciences programs.

Agrocampus Ouest Key Statistics

The institution has six doctoral schools, covering fields such as life-agro-health, plants, environment health, materials science, and mathematics, telecommunications, informatics, signal systems, and electronics. While the school is meant mainly to train engineers, it also offers three master’s degrees and more than 20 graduate specialties to local and international students. Among the graduate specialties are in agronomic sciences, biology of organisms, earth and environmental sciences, food science, and process engineering.

Agrocampus Ouest's population is made up of approximately 2,000 students and 470 staff members. Among the students, 10% are international students who came from more than 30 countries. Approximately 130 of the student population are enrolled in Ph.D. programs. There are two campuses, the main campus in Rennes and a satellite location in Angers.
