Presentation

Are you curious and creative? Do you think biotechnology is the basis for sustainable industry and the circular economy? Are you interested in big issues, such as the impact of plastics and consumer products on the environment? Would you like to develop next- generation 'smart' biomedical devices? Do you see yourself as an innovator capable of creating a business with advanced biotechnologies? If you answered yes, then the Master's Degree Programme in Industrial Biotechnologies (LM-8) is for you. The programme aims to train modern biotechnologists with a sound multidisciplinary knowledge, experimental and transversal skills, and who are able to integrate the most advanced technologies. The purpose is that graduates find employment in important production sectors in the Modena area, including the biomedical industry, the sustainable design and production of food, biodegradable materials and bioactive substances.

Course content

The Master's Degree in Industrial Biotechnologies provides a strong multidisciplinary scientific and technological basis, at the confluence of: biotechnology, chemistry and materials science, structural and molecular biology, microbiology, sensors and characterisation, realisation and production techniques. The training programme includes lectures combined with workshops; an apprenticeship or internship in universities, research institutions or companies, also in Europe; an experimental thesis project in a university research laboratory or in a company. Professors are international researchers, working in European, national and regional research projects. Graduates benefit from a strong training in research and development, rich in management, design, and entrepreneurial soft skills.

Career options

Graduates in Industrial Biotechnologies are able to fit easily into the advanced biotechnology industry and are equipped with a wealth of knowledge essential for both the biomedical sector and multi-sectoral fields characterised by sustainable production. Graduates will have knowledge of the concepts behind the industry of the future, such as sustainability, circular economy, life cycle analysis, environmental impact, and will be able to operate, grow professionally, and contribute to the development of the biotechnology industry of the future. The degree also allows excellent and motivated graduates to access PhD programmes in Italy or abroad.
