The three semester Master program in Biotechnology is an intensive, laboratory based, research oriented training program which immediately follows the seven-semester Bachelor program in Biotechnology at L.U.A.S. (consecutive BA/MA study). The Master program starts every year in the summer semester.
After two semesters of intensive training, students complete the program with an at least four-months thesis project leading to the degree Master of Science.
To provide our students with a broad theoretical background in two semesters lectures are offered in the following topics
Our master program is focused on achieving practical competencies, educating autonomous self-confident graduates. Students participate three lab courses of five weeks (6 hours per day) in the first two semesters. Specialization is attained by majoring in different lab courses:
|1.st semester||Metabolic Analysis and Engineering||Basics in Cell Culture||Nanobiotechnology|
|Enzyme Technology||Molecular Biology: Principles, Methods and Applications||Enzyme Technology|
|Purification and Characterisation of Proteines||Nanobiotechnology||Analytics in Cell Culture|
|2.nd semester||Nanobiotechnology||Development and Characterisation of artificial Tissues||Molecular Biology: Principles, Methods and Applications|
|Microbes as Macromolecule Factories||Genetic Engineering of Eucaryotic Cells||Microalgae|
To assure individual training on high standard, special emphasis is put on individual training in small groups. Therefore the number of participants is limited. 10% of our places are reserved for foreign applications. All lectures, seminars and laboratory courses are taught in English.
The thesis project involves experimental work under the supervision of a faculty member of the master program. This work can also be done outside the university, i.e. in research institutes or companies.
The admission process is a stepwise procedure, including personal interviews with candidates, if necessary. Requirements include:
|National applicants||International apllicants|
|Online application (see below)||Master apllication form (see below)|
