The Master of Biophysics, Biochemistry and Biotechnology provides in-depth training in multidisciplinary fields, with particular emphasis on subfields in which KU Leuven's research expertise is internationally recognised:
the determination of molecular structures
molecular and supramolecular modelling
the spectroscopy of biomolecules, biofunctional surfaces, and interfaces
the nano-biophysics, physical modelling of complex systems, and study of these models
transport through ion channels in membranes
the study of molecular interactions and physical principles in vitro, in complex biological machineries, and in the living cell
In this two year master programme you select one of two profiles, either Biophysics or Biochemistry and Biotechnology.
This study programme will prepare and equip you to enter the workplace with all the necessary skills, expertise and experience to solve many of the greatest challenges facing the fields of biophysics, biochemistry and biotechnology.
Students on this two-year Master's program will select one of two profiles, either Biophysics or Biochemistry and Biotechnology.
Introductory courses comprise a maximum of 18 ECTS points that can be obtained from the introductory courses in order to fill any gaps. Core courses are specific to each of the two profiles and through Elective Courses, students may select relevant courses from the entire program offered at the university if they have the approval of the program director.
Finally, 30 ECTS are obtained upon completion and defense of your second Master thesis project.
