At the end of the first year, students will have a global view of all facets of vaccinology, from scientific to engineering aspects. The goal of the second year is to use that knowledge to define and execute a personal project. The deliverable is a master thesis that will be presented to a jury for graduation.

Tutors will assist the trainees in the definition of the master thesis subject. They will also be available for discussion and guidance during the execution of the project.

Students without professional experience may acquire practical experience in a specific field of vaccinology by working in a vaccine company, a research laboratory, or a regulatory agency.

Students who already work in the field of vaccines will either broaden their experience and professional knowledge, or acquire competencies in a new field.
