Master in Plant Breeding

Institut Polytechnique LaSalle Beauvais
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 France Beauvais

The aim of this programme is to train plant breeders able to grasp and manage the scientific and technical interdisciplinarity between biotechnologies, agronomy, plant biology, genetics, regulatory issues and markets. [+]

Masters in Biochemistry in Europe 2017. Master's in Plant Breeding In its report entitled "World Agriculture : towards 2015/2030", the FAO outlines the need for an approximate 60% increase in agricultural production by 2050, in order to meet the nutritional requirements of the world’s human population. This growth will, in part, be built upon an increase in yields, in particular via the genetic improvement of plants. There have been major advances in this field over the last twenty years, as a result of new molecular and cellular biology technologies reaching far beyond the confines of plant transgenics. In this positive context, plant breeding companies and food manufacturing and various non-food manufacturing companies are expressing a growing need for plant breeders who are able to understand and manage increasingly diverse technologies in order to meet more complex and varied objectives. This burgeoning demand is becoming ever more apparent, in the face of a dwindling number of university courses on offer in this field. What is more, the handful of one-year courses specialising in plant breeding do not cover the entire field of activity of a plant breeder in today’s context. Our objectives The Masters programme in Plant Breeding at LaSalle Beauvais is focused on plant improvement and the creation of new plant varieties. In a climate of increasing global demand for both food and non-food agricultural production, and a quest for sustainable growth in agricultural productivity, the Masters programme in Plant Breeding addresses these challenges via plant genetics and improvement. The aim of this programme is to train plant breeders able to grasp and manage the scientific and technical interdisciplinarity between biotechnologies, agronomy, plant biology, genetics, regulatory issues and markets. This programme was designed in partnership with seed companies and the food industry, and constructed with Ghent University, in Belgium, thus combining the hands-on approach of the renowned field training undertaken by LaSalle Beauvais engineers and the excellence of one of Europe’s top universities. Our strengths a more wide-ranging course in plant breeding than most international masters programmes, which focus primarily on the application of biotechnologies to plant breeding ; partnership with Ghent University (Belgium), giving our students access to the latest advances in biotechnology ; a course designed and run in association with seed and plant breeding companies.

Master in Molecular Biology (M.Sc.)

 

This intensive programme leads graduates with a bachelor's degree to a Master of Science (M.Sc.) within 18 months. After a 3-year doctorate programme, graduates may acquire either the title Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) or Dr. rer. nat.. The semester structure has been removed, different subjects are integrated into a uniformly structured range of courses and it is possible to switch into the doctorate programme without a master's thesis, thus shortening the period of study. All courses are held in English.The programme is divided into two parts. During the first year, lectures, tutorials, seminars, methodical internships and individually tutored research projects take place within 36 weeks. Lab rotation and individual tutorials as well as the involvement of lecturers from Max Planck institutes guarantee work that is hands-on and research-oriented. The first year of study ends with one written and two oral exams that qualify for the master's thesis. These may be omitted if good or excellent grades have been attained during the first year of study, allowing the student to switch directly over to the 3-year doctorate programme.Early participation in scientific conferences and courses as well as the publication of articles in international scientific journals are also required for the doctoral degree. The doctorate programme enables research stays in laboratories abroad.Social integration also plays an important role. A coordination office helps students at the start of their studies in Göttingen and offers a central contact point during the entire programme.Involved in the interdisciplinary programme of the Göttingen Centre for Molecular Biosciences are the Faculties of Biology and Psychology, Medicine, Chemistry and Agricultural Sciences, the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry and for Experimental Medicine, as well as the German Primate Centre.The degree qualifies graduates for a professional career in molecular and cellular biosciences....

Master in Biological Chemistry

University of South Bohemia in Ceske Budejovice
Campus Full time September 2017 Czech Republic České Budějovice

The cross-border master study program in cooperation with the Johannes Kepler University in Linz advances on the knowledge of the bachelor curriculum of Biological Chemistry but is also open to students from other universities and related programs.

The cross-border master study program in cooperation with the Johannes Kepler University in Linz advances on the knowledge of the bachelor curriculum of Biological Chemistry but is also open to students from other universities and related programs. It evolves the unique synthesis of chemical and biological education and background with special emphasis to interdisciplinary and working research and development skills. Program mission The success in the area of biological research and biotechnologies today depends on applying an ideal approach and a deep knowledge of both chemical and biological disciplines. The proposed study program aims at training laboratory executives to become familiar with this new requirements in order to assure their professional future. The expansion of the European Union and the ever-increasing adoption of European dimensions in research and technologies makes it a precondition for a successful professional career as well as for meeting the challenges of the European Union. Having built on a solid tradition of quality in biological disciplines, Faculty of Biological Sciences (University of South Bohemia) would like to take a step further and offer in cooperation with the Johannes Kepler University in Linz (Austria), the new study program of biological chemistry. Just as the region is changing in response to the economic and cultural needs of an increasingly globalised society, so, too, is Faculty of Biological Sciences (USB) facing this challenge by expanding a range of study programs. The primary goal of the proposed study program is to provide state-of-the art education that encompasses molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry and biophysics. The program represents an alternative extension of the modern molecular, cellular and structural biology towards biochemistry, bio-organic chemistry and biophysics. [-]

Master Aquatic Systems And Water Management (sage)

École Des Ponts ENPC
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 France Paris

Science and Environmental Management are characterized by the multiplicity of knowledge and areas to mobilize to solve satisfactorily [+]

Masters in Biochemistry in Europe 2017. Science and Environmental Management are characterized by the multiplicity of knowledge and areas to mobilize to resolve satisfactorily the problems they pose. This multidisciplinary approach covers both many aspects of materials science, nature and life, and also for a large share of aspects related to human sciences. GOALS The objective of the specialty SAGE is twofold. This is part of give students a thorough training on biogeochemical processes that govern the quality of aquatic environments and interactions of these environments in regional environments, and secondly, to understand and know the instruments management of water, whether technical procedures for the collection and treatment of water or the main water policies implemented in different regions of the world. Thus, special attention will be given to training multidisciplinary character of a technical point of view (fluid mechanics, chemistry and microbiology), both for students oriented research and professional vocation. ADMISSION Degree Required: Master M1 (or equivalent) The admission of the candidates is a review of the application and an interview with the leaders of the specialty issue. Back 2014-2015 Retraction of the specialty SAGE will be Monday, September 8, 2014. [-]
