Léa Maximin is currently 3rd year engineer and has followed the CTV Major. She completed her final year (2019-2020) at the Université du Québec and wants to work later in the cosmetics field.
“After two years of CPI (Integrated Preparatory Cycle) in Lille, I joined the ENSCR, attracted by the «Chemistry and Living Technologies» (CLT) sector accessible in 2nd year. Thanks to the various courses delivered as well as the internships carried out within the school curriculum, I was able to refine my professional project: working in the field of formulation and particularly in the cosmetics sector. I completed my final year of school at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi (UQAC), in Canada, with a double degree to specialize in the field of cosmetology. In this way, I was able to benefit from a small teaching staff whose year was separated into two parts: a first part of practical and theoretical learning, followed by an implementation through the development of a range of cosmetic products. This training was enriching both professionally and personally, where we are offered the opportunity to study abroad through the various partnerships offered by the school. Following my final internship in natural ingredient enhancement, in cosmetic formulations, I would like to continue on this path.”
Benjamin GRAIN is currently in 3rd year (2019-2020) and follows the CTV Major. Currently, he is doing his final year internship at the Institut Pasteur in Lille and would like to continue after his diploma towards a doctorate.
“Passionate about the sciences and especially about Chemistry, I decided to follow a course of Chemical Engineer by starting a Preparatory Cycle Integrated in the ENSCL (Chemistry Lille), following which I chose to join the ENSCR (Chimie Rennes) which offered me the opportunity to specialize in Organic Chemistry during the Engineering Cycle. So I opted for the CTV major (Chemistry and Technologies for the Living) in the 2nd year, then I followed a double diploma Engineer – Master Molecular Chemistry in the last year. This choice is consistent with my wish to work in the field of Research. I am currently completing my internship at the Institut Pasteur in Lille in the CBF (Chemical Biology of Flatworms) team. I am working specifically on the development of a solid phase protein synthesis method. Following this internship, I plan to do a thesis that, I hope, will bring me a rewarding and successful experience. During my course, I particularly appreciated the mobility offered by the Gay Lussac Federation, which allows everyone to build the course that best suits them. The richness of the teachings, the advantage of studying in a school on a human scale where students are united and the organization of inter-student challenges (Innov’Chem) I have contributed a lot during these 3 years spent in Rennes. Not to mention the opportunity to do an internship abroad in the 2nd year! As far as I’m concerned, I chose KTH (Royal Institute of Technology) in Stockholm, which remains an unforgettable experience.”
