In the field of modern biotechnology, the presence of new technologies, based on the scientific breakthrough of molecular genetics, cell biology and engineering, as well as (in the near future) nanotechnology, has been emphasized. Thus, a close relation and cooperation between the teaching process and the work on scientific research projects at the Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology is expected. This will enable the development of abilities for an individual and creative work in the fields of research and development as well as for introducing new technologies.
The proposed graduate study programme of bioprocess engineering is a direct continuation of the undergraduate study of biotechnology with the aim of educating experts skilled for performing highly complicated tasks in the fields of designing and conductingbiotechnological processes, research work and process development, as well as, the production of modern biotechnology and management of biotechnological companies.
