Biotechnology (double degree)

The aim of the study programme Biotechnology is to prepare graduates capable of independent work in biotechnology and other related fields. The study focuses on scientific research and its applications in the development of new products and technologies using the biological agent as the basis of the process. Special attention is paid to the specific properties of microbial, plant, and animal cells and to the acquisition of the ability to apply this knowledge in the development of new products. An integral part is the development of new technical (engineering) solutions to biotechnological processes. The study is therefore focused on a comprehensive studying of theoretical knowledge in chemical, biological, engineering and economic sciences, and on gaining practical experience and skills in the field of management and methodology of biotechnological research. Graduates of this programme can participate in basic and applied research at academic institutions and universities, but they can also participate in practice in the Czech Republic and abroad. Thanks to the double-degree doctoral programme, students will gain valuable professional and language foreign experience as well as interdisciplinary knowledge and transferable skills that will increase their competitiveness and the possibility of finding employment in the labour market. Both the strengths of UCT Prague, consisting of professional background of top academic staff and modern instrumentation equipment, as well as the specific strengths of a foreign partner with a unique and complementary educational and research profile are utilized.

Uplatnění

The graduates of the double degree doctoral study programme Biotechnology are engaged in scientific research focused primarily on the development and optimization of processes for the production of pharmaceutical products, pure chemicals, biofuels, as well as traditional fermentation products. Other applications are directly in the biotechnology industry and related areas of the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, including in the area of bio-waste processing and environmental protection. They can hold managerial positions in development, production, control and design in commercial institutions and state administration bodies. Due to the wide concept of expertise they are prepared not only for professional work in their specialization, but also for easy adaptation to possible work in other technological and natural sciences fields. This double-degree DSP fully reflects employers' requirements for university graduates, including language skills. Employers prefer broad, interdisciplinary professional skills for future employees as well as key competencies - so-called “soft knowledge and skills”. Many employers (mainly operating on world markets) appreciate the foreign experience of doctoral graduates.
