Overview

The aim of the program Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Analysis is to prepare highly qualified biotechnology specialists with the knowledge of biotechnology and pharmaceutical analysis, able to develop, optimize and implement fermentation processes, and genetic engineering technologies, analyze and optimize separation and purification processes, able to properly perform qualitative and quantitative evaluation of analytes or continue doctoral studies.

The program “Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Analysis” is distinguished by subjects covering various biotechnologies and their application in different fields (gene engineering, fermentation, food technology, pharmaceuticals) and subjects that include different methods of analysis and their development, implementation, and application to quantitative and qualitative analysis of pharmaceutical substances. The program provides skills that are characteristic of the second level of education – analysis, evaluation, submission of proposals, problem-solving, development of autonomy, etc. The program covers more analytical subjects and upon completion of these studies, a specialist would be able to work in an analysis laboratory or field of analysis in any research area or in companies, research institutes, centers related to the field of analysis, or could continue his studies in a doctoral program. Upon completion of these studies, a master’s degree in technological sciences is awarded.

The learning outcomes of the program are focused on the theoretical and emphasis on practical learning, incorporating advanced knowledge in the field of biotechnology and pharmaceutical analysis, creating a basis for original ideas and their implementation; as well as the ability to integrate knowledge and formulate decisions taking into account social and ethical aspects.
