A Masters degree gives you the opportunity to either further your understanding of a particular question or take off in a completely different way using skills you have gained from your previous undergraduate degree.
Bioengineering is the study of the principles of engineering as they apply to biomedical technologies and biological systems. Bioengineering students learn disciplines related to both biology and engineering, including mechanical engineering, computer science and chemistry.
Top Master Programs in Bioengineering in Portugal 2019
This program will allow the intervention in areas which link the primary and secondary sectors, providing new accomplishments namely in the field of microbial technology and plant biotechnology. [+]
This master program main goal is to provide technological training with a rather strong professional approach. This will allow the intervention in areas which link the primary and secondary sectors, providing new accomplishments namely in the field of microbial technology and plant biotechnology. This study cycle is lectured in cooperation with CIMO (The Mountain Research Centre), a Research & Development unit of the Portuguese Science and Technology Foundation (FCT).Profile of the program
The profile of the program is organized into two major areas of specialization, microbial biotechnology (Microbial Physiology and Genetics; Microbial Associations and Biofertilizers, Biomass and Bioenergy; Industrial Microbiology) and agricultural biotechnology (Microbial Associations and Biofertilizers, Genetically Modified Organisms; Biomass and Bioenergy Production; Molecular Diagnostic Methods; Biopesticides and Biocontrol; Biofactories, Bioproducts and Innovation). A set of courses is the interface between the two areas (Biomass and Bioenergy; Biocatalysts Technology, Engineering of Biotechnological Processes), giving the necessary engineering component to this curriculum. Finally, the disciplines that provide the foundations of statistics and experimental design (Multivariate Analysis and Experimental Design), and safety and regulation in the biotechnology industry (Safety and Regulation in Biotechnology) complete the plan of studies.
