  • Volailles

"I'm currently in my 2nd year of a Master's degree in Statistics and Life Data with a specialism in Mathematics and Applications at the University of Poitiers. My main task is to analyse data from different sources to come up with results that will help species specialists in their work. At Techna, my tutor and I organise an average of one weekly meeting, sometimes more, so that I can make progress in my work. Finally, I'd like to add that the good atmosphere within the company means that I can develop in a friendly and caring environment".

Anaïs apprentie TECHNA, école d'ingénieur ESA d'Angers
Apprenticeship study in the aquaculture department
  • Aquaculture

"I'm a 4th year agricultural engineering student at ESA in Angers, specialising in animal production, and I'm currently an apprentice at Techna. I was given a warm welcome on my arrival. I followed an induction programme that enabled me to meet the various departments and visit the Malville production plant.

My main task concerns the use of enzymes in aquaculture formulas. My role involves working with several departments: R&D, purchasing and ingredients, as well as carrying out laboratory experiments. I have twice-weekly follow-ups with my tutor and can call on him at any time if necessary.

At Techna, I appreciate the independence I'm given, as well as the support and friendliness of my colleagues. The pleasant working atmosphere also contributes to my professional fulfilment."

"I did my 5th year work placement in animal production engineering at Techna. This experience enabled me to immerse myself in the field of precision feeding for 6 months, after which they offered me the chance to continue the adventure, first as a formulator for 8 months and then as a VIE within our Techna Central and West Africa subsidiary in Abidjan.
My role is multi-faceted, ranging from formulation to training, with responsibility for the Cameroon and Mali markets. I'm also involved in business development and the creation of scientific dossiers for our products. I benefit from solid supervision from two direct superiors. Professionally, TECHNA offers me an exceptional opportunity to fulfil my dream of exploring Africa while developing in the field of animal production. My goal is to become an expert in monogastrics."
