The Molecular Biotechnology program gives students the scientific background and skills concerning living organisms and a command of engineering techniques combined with aspects of economics and business management. You will be able to contribute to the elucidation of disease mechanisms and translate knowledge to engineering approaches in which living cells or organisms are used for the production of fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals or biofuels. The program also offers excellent preparation for students to proceed to an MSc in this research field.
The Food Technology program teaches you everything about the chemical and physicochemical, microbiological, nutritional and technological aspects of foods. You study the processes that occur in raw materials and during the production process, the preservation and the preparation of foods. You learn how the quality of foods can influence consumer health and how you can control the safety and quality of foods. After your program, you will be able to solve problems anywhere in the food chain, and you will be able to work in the food industry, the pharmaceutical and biomedical sector, or in government or research institutions.
