The programme prepares graduates to become experts with high-level knowledge in biotechnologies and bioingeneering and food science, with an emphasis on food quality and safety. The broadly designed structure of this programme—together with intentional connection between chemical, biological, and engineering education—opens a wide range of career options to graduates. The programme extends and deepens general knowledge gained at the Bachelor level in biochemistry, organic and physical chemistry, biology, microbiology, food technology and analysis, and in the fundamentals in biotechnology and bioengineering. Students may hone their expertise by properly choosing elective courses.
Graduates are prepared for highly qualified positions in biotechnological companies, in food production plants, in companies oriented to agricultural commodities, and in health care or pharmaceutical companies. They are qualified to hold positions in (bio-)process design and control and quality management in research and development departments. Due to the versatility of their education, graduates are prepared to adapt easily to changing conditions and new tasks. Graduates are also prepared for positions in administration and supervisory agencies and doctoral studies.
