Aim of the program
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:
General and physical chemistry, Botany, Animal anatomy, Mathematics, Physics and biophysics, Information technologies, Organic chemistry, Cell Biology, Animal histology, Ecology, Design thinkin
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.
Genetic engineering, Basics of bioinformatics, Design and development of technological lines, Biotechnological methods in environmental protection, Physiomics, Immunology, Cell and tissue cultures, Industrial biotechnology, Social and legal aspects of biotechnology, Statistics.
Chemical safety, Seminar, Graduation workshop, Professional practice.
Each year there is a variety of facultative subjects covering specific biotechnology related topics.
