Molecular Biotechnology

Programme description

Molecular Biotechnology is a graduate (second-cycle) programme of studies. It is a full-time programme of studies which apart from offering obligatory courses asks students to follow their interests in choosing a variety of electives. The programme is composed of the courses on practical biochemistry, cell biology, plant biology, molecular biology, genetic engineering etc. A student writes his or her diploma dissertation based on results of an individual research project prepared through the course of laboratory practice.

Graduate’s profile

A graduate of the Molecular Biotechnology programme has a good knowledge of the basis of sciences and in-depth knowledge regarding biological processes occurring on a molecular level, as well as specialised subjects covered by this curriculum. This knowledge enables describing, explaining and exploiting various biological processes. A graduate is prepared to work in the area of:

  • directed genetic modification of microorganisms and cells of higher organisms
  • directing of processes of biosynthesis and biotransformation
  • analysis of intracellular processes
  • isolation and purification of bioproducts
  • medical diagnostic

The graduates are well prepared to work in research and development institutions, and – depending on a chosen specialisation – in laboratories focused on medicine, pharmacology, environmental protection and agriculture.

Qualification rules

The ranking list reflects the applicants’ final qualification results calculated on the basis of interview verifying candidate’s aptitude for the program. Interview conducted in English, graded on the scale of 0–100 points, that verifies: knowledge in the field of biological sciences, fluency in English, including technical vocabulary in the fields of biology and chemistry, candidate’s aptitude and motivation to study the chosen field.
