Course Description

Course Profile

Aim of the programme

Biotechnology is a multidisciplinary field of study, combining knowledge of life sciences and engineering, aiming to use the living organisms in product development, testing and manufacturing. In addition to general topics students can focus on plants-, animals-and microorganisms- biotechnology giving them practical and theoretical knowledge. Our aim is to provide a solid foundation for future careers in food and pharmaceutical industry, diagnostics, plant breeding companies, research institutions and many others. We put special attention on cutting edge topics including bioinformatics, genomics, nanobiotechnology and genetic engineering. Graduates will be able to plan and run the biotechnological experiments and processes, generate, interpret and report high quality biological data, evaluate the use or particular methods and devices.

Main mandatory subjects:

1 Year
General and physical chemistry, Botany, Animal anatomy, Mathematics, Physics and biophysics, Information technologies, Organic chemistry, Cell Biology, Animal histology, Ecology, Design thinking.
2 Year
General genetics, Biochemistry, General microbiology, Plant physiology, Animal physiology, Physiology of microorganisms, Engineering of biotechnological processes, Molecular biology, Basics of genetics and animal breeding, Enzymology and Biochemical technics, General virology.
3 Year
