Programme profile

This degree programme in Biotechnology isoffered by the Department of Pharmacy and Biotechnology within the School ofPharmacy, Biotechnology and Sport Science, with contributions from a further 11 University Departments. The resulting inter-disciplinary course structurediagram enables students to study all disciplines of the various biotechnologyapplications (red, green, white biotechnologies etc.), as well as umbrelladisciplines.

The objectives of the learning plan are to:a) train graduates who are able to continue their University studies in aprofitable and effective manner; b) train professionals able to apply, in athinking manner, the biotechnological methodologies envisaged by currentItalian and EU regulations.

This restricted access degree programmewith entrance test ensures that the selected students have the individuallaboratory space needed to follow experimental protocols on their own. Thelaboratory facilities available to the degree programme were designed to satisfythis criterion, being a fundamental element in the provision of a high-levelprogramme catalogue that meets market requirements. Laboratory work is a keypart of the programme catalogue, as is the mandatory curricular internship.This internship may be carried out within University structures or externally,in accordance with the rules established by the University. Mandatoryinternships are an important element of the programme catalogue, as they enablestudents to understand specific techniques better and experience the world ofbusiness or biotechnology laboratories for the first time.

The first year of study covers basicdisciplines as preparation for those that are more specificallybiotechnological in nature; the second year addresses the basic fundamentals ofbiotechnology, while the basics covered in the third year look at specificbiotechnological applications and contexts.
