Biology, specialization: Molecular biology
Description

MSc Molecular Biology programme is dedicated to candidates interested in obtaining state-of-the-art multidisciplinary knowledge crucial to understanding life processes at a molecular level along with examples of its applications. The acquisition of sound theoretical knowledge is complementary to the development of competences and professional skills relevant in scientific research and molecular analysis. The programme is closely linked to the highly regarded most up-to-date scientific research conducted at the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology and supported by the expertise of external internationally renowned practitioners and academics to ensure the highest standards of education.

The MSc Molecular Biology programme ensures upper-level knowledge and skills in the area of biomolecular and biomedical sciences as well as biotechnology, acquired during both compulsory and elective courses. The core obligatory courses include, among others, advanced molecular biology, molecular microbiology, biochemistry, regulation of cellular processes, bioinformatics, synthetic biology, innovations in environmental microbiology and sustainable development, or molecular biology in entrepreneurship. The big advantage of our innovative programme is a high contribution of elective courses, to be chosen by students according to their interest. They include some complementary courses extending the basic or specialistic knowledge in the area of advanced genetics, proteomics and molecular modelling, as well as theme modules, providing specialisation in molecular biology for medicine or for environment and industry. Practical classes and laboratory training are of a high priority in our Molecular Biology programme representing more than 50% of the classes.

The students can also choose a topic of their individual research projects. This is an original research work realised for three semesters through the course of laboratory practice under the supervision of an experienced promoter and provides the results to prepare the diploma dissertation.

The broad knowledge and sought-after competences and skills offered by this Master’s programme open many career opportunities. Our graduates are well prepared to work in public or private research institutions, biotechnological, pharmaceutical, agro-industrial and human health or environmental-related companies. They can work as research staff or high-qualified technicians in laboratories of these sectors as well as in forensic laboratories and forensic medicine, and also as specialists in consultancy and training companies. They are well prepared for PhD studies.

The Molecular Biology MSc programme is in compliance with European teaching standards.

The study programme does not include internship.
