Master of Biochemical Engineering Technology
This master’s programme provides in-depth, interdisciplinary training in biochemical engineering as practiced in various contexts and sectors. Particular areas of focus include food science, biomedical sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, and environmental sciences. In addition to fundamental (bio)chemical and scientific coursework, the curriculum includes assignments in socio-economics and biotechnology.
This master's programme incorporates knowledge from various industries (food, biomedical, pharmaceutical, environmental, etc.) to provide a well-rounded graduate-level curriculum in biomechanical engineering.
In addition to fundamental (bio)chemical-scientific course units, you will take courses in socio-economics (company management, economics) and biotechnology (engineering, separation techniques, fermentation technology, molecular biology techniques, industrial biochemistry and microbiology, environmental technology, bioreactor design, etc.).
A flexible cross-campus elective package and a master's thesis conducted in either a research-specific or an industrial context enable you to focus your studies according to your specific interests and career goals.
