Biotechnology

A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

 

Biotechnology is a challenging area that combines science and engineering concepts. Students who pursue this educational path will likely gain knowledge in microbiology, chemistry, genetics, cell biology, bioethics, gene cloning, bioinstrumentation, bioinformatics, genomics, and biometrics.

If you are thinking of furthering your education in an institution, where academic excellence is adhered to then Austria offers the best destination. These institutions are research based thus enabling students to get ideas on how solve real life problems.

Graz is the second largest town in Austria and is often referred as a student city due to its many education centres. University of Graz is the most popular, though there are other colleges and universities in this area.

Masters in Biotechnology in Graz in Austria. Biogenic resources are a central component of a sustainable economic system in Europe. Biorefinery engineers develop, plan and implement innovative, technical products and processes for using biogenic resources economically and in an ecologically sustainable manner. You will acquire all the knowledge necessary for this from the very wide-ranging technical specialisations covered in the Master’s degree programme Biorefinery Engineering at the TU Graz: this expertise extends from process engineering to chemistry and biotechnology through to energy engineering and environmental engineering. The focus in all of this is on innovation orientation, a close link to practice and also international activities of the students. Content You will acquire the engineering sciences knowledge and skills necessary for the construction and operation of technical systems for the use of biogenic resources. You will learn how to develop and optimise process engineering methods. You will be able to evaluate the technical, logistic and economic challenges resulting from the use of biogenic raw materials along the entire chain of valued creation. You will learn how to understand deal with complex problems in scientific and industrial contexts, to formulate these and to develop and present the solutions for them. You will assess regional, economic, social and ecological framework conditions in the context of the bioeconomy. You will learn how to recognise trends in bio-based industry. You will acquire the scientific and analytic methods needed to evaluate and characterise biogenic resources. You will carry out independently high-quality and structured research work. You... [-]
