The Master’s Programme in Chemical, Biochemical and Materials Engineering – Biotechnology provides a strong multidisciplinary knowledge-base in biotechnology and bioengineering, and the tools for applying it in research and business environment. Biotechnology is gaining importance in our everyday lives and its impact on solving societal problems related to the environment, global warming and health are undeniable. Biotechnology is an enabling technology that ranges from the design of new biopharmaceuticals and production of novel biosynthetic materials and biochemicals to the use of cutting-edge synthetic biology concepts. Bioprocess development and modelling is an integral part of modern biotechnology.

Objectives of studies

In addition to the fundamentals of biotechnology, the study option emphasizes its engineering and technological aspects. This allows multiple opportunities to apply the acquired skills during practical courses and in real-life problems in industry. Biotechnology graduates have:

  • Multidisciplinary knowledge in biotechnology. Graduates understand both the fundamentals as well as the engineering and technological aspects of biotechnology and easily collaborate with many allied sections of science.

  • Strong hands-on experience. Graduates are able to use key laboratory methods and techniques to apply these tools for the development of biotechnological processes.

  • Analysis and simulation skills. Graduates can carry out quantifications, modelling and analysis on micro- and macromolecular-levels in research and commercial environment.

  • Co-working abilities. Graduates are goal-oriented and systematic, yet responsible professionals who collaborate fluently with experts of different fields and cultures.

  • Communications skills. Graduates express themselves clearly and unambiguously both orally and in writing, tailoring their communications to the target audience.

Structure of studies

Master's Programme in Chemical, Biochemical and Materials Engineering – Biotechnology is organised by the School of Chemical Engineering and comprises a total of 120 ECTS credits. The two-year programme consists of:

Major studies (65 ECTS)

Master’s thesis (30 ECTS)

Elective studies (25 ECTS)

Biotechnology is one of the study options listed under the larger theme of Chemical, Biochemical and Materials Engineering. The study option is chosen at the application stage.
