Master of Biochemical Engineering Technology

This master’s programme provides in-depth, interdisciplinary training in biochemical engineering as practiced in various contexts and sectors. Particular areas of focus include food science, biomedical sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, and environmental sciences. In addition to fundamental (bio)chemical and scientific coursework, the curriculum includes assignments in socio-economics and biotechnology.

About the programme

This programme focuses on the application of biomedical processes in a wide range of sectors, such as biotechnology, food, environment and pharmaceutics. You become familiar with all kinds of techniques for monitoring biological processes: recombinant DNA-techniques, immunological, molecular and micro-biological detection and identification techniques, chemical analysis techniques, etc. Throughout your education, you will acquire the scientific and technical knowledge necessary to handle and to manage these processes in a business environment.

This master's programme incorporates knowledge from various industries (food, biomedical, pharmaceutical, environmental, etc.) to provide a well-rounded graduate-level curriculum in biochemical engineering.

In addition to fundamental (bio)chemical-scientific course units, you will take courses in socio-economics (company management, economics) and biotechnology (engineering, separation techniques, fermentation technology, molecular biology techniques, industrial biochemistry and microbiology, environmental technology, bioreactor design, etc.).

A flexible cross-campus elective package and a master's thesis conducted in either a research-specific or an industrial context enable you to focus your studies according to your specific interests and career goals.

Career perspectives

As a master in Engineering Technology, you are prepared to take advantage of a whole world of opportunities. Masters in Engineering Technology are active in the most diverse positions, professions and sectors all over the world. They are the engine of innovation in business and society. Masters in Biochemical Technology have a wide range of career opportunities, be it as a biotechnologist, biochemical analyst, biocatalysis expert, engineer brewing technology, forensic researcher, nutrition engineer, pharmaceutical engineer, quality assurance engineer, ...
