Through this program, students will be able to develop a deep knowledge of the theory and fundamentals of biotechnology and develop biotechnology laboratory skills, with a comprehension of the real-world biotech business.
Graduates will acquire the competence needed to work in the field of:
They also get access to Ph.D. programs and to other secondary specialization schools.
To complete the program, a total of 120 credits (CFU) must be acquired. 1 CFU is conventionally set as corresponding to 8 hours of lessons plus 17 hours of personal study, or to 12 hours of laboratory experience plus 13 hours of personal study. The ambition of our courses is to provide cutting-edge information, not yet codified in conventional textbooks. For this reason attendance for at least 70% of lessons is strongly recommended to guarantee success in studies.
Of the 120 CFU, 77 credits are from Core Courses and 9 credits are from Elective Courses. The final 34 CFU must be acquired by the students fulfilling the degree requirements, i.e. performing experimental lab work (usually in a 6-8 months internship project yielding publication-quality research), writing a dissertation on its results and defending the dissertation.
