Masters of Science (MScs) in Biotechnology.

Degree course track held in English of the second-cycle degree course Biotecnologie per l'alimentazione (Biotechnologies for food science)

Interdisciplinary and research-oriented MSc concerning the use of advanced biotechnologies in food production and safety.

Course description

The MSc in Biotechnologies for Food Science explores how to produce healthier and safer food following a cross-cutting, farm/field-to-fork approach. Focused on the application of advanced biotechnological methodologies in food production and safety, it is the ideal trait-d’union between the requests of consumers and producers in the agro-food sector and the research applied to production and food-safety. Thus, the course has a strong component on cutting-edge disciplines like genomics, bioinformatics, proteomics, metabolomics and nanotechnologies, all in the context of animal and crop production as well as of food quality and safety. Theoretical lessons are mixed with a relatively high number of practical training, including the ECTS (23) dedicated to the thesis work, covering the whole second semester of the second year.... [-]

The aim is to educate candidates in biotechnological skills in general, thus qualifying them for careers in a range of organisations including those whose focus is on innovation, commercial development and value creation of marine resources in processes and industry.

We are preoccupied with exploiting the advantage we enjoy as a nation in the form of access to enormous marine resources. Most of the organisms that comprise the marine biodiversity are still little researched. These bio-resources can be the source of unique biomolecules (enzymes, secondary metabolites, proteins/peptides, marine fats and carbohydrates) and the associated genetic codes.

Good relationships with the biotechnological industry are exploited to adapt the teaching, and ensure that it is relevant for commercial development and innovation. Many newly established businesses in the region have their origins in the biotechnological community in Tromsø and the sector is expanding. The programme will give you much sought-after expertise....

About

Bio-inspired design and science are used for innovations that support a transition to a sustainable, circular economy. The Master’s program Bio Inspired Innovation (BII) offers a unique blend of knowledge and skill training that will support the search for and development of circular business-models and bio-inspired research & innovations.

Scientist at the Design Table

We live in a society that places great trust in technology and science to solve our problems and fulfill our needs. However, science and technology alone cannot provide us with a society that nourishes rather than destroys its surroundings. We need to switch to a more circular society. We will introduce you to the grand challenges that need to be tackled to become a circular society and to the Life’s Principles that are of use in the scoping and evaluation design phases of a biomimicry design cycle....
