The master's degree in Biological and Environmental Engineering, worth 90 ECTS credits, is a master's degree which combines the synergies of two emerging disciplines with a very promising future: Biological Engineering and Environmental Engineering. Both are studied in depth from the point of view of a Chemical Engineer. The overall objective of the master's degree in Biological and Environmental Engineering is to train professionals and researchers who are capable of integrating advanced concepts in chemical engineering into the design of solutions for the research, development and operation of processes using microorganisms and their biological components in the areas of industrial biotechnology and environmental engineering. You will acquire the training needed to form part of businesses from the biotechnological and/or environmental sector with the aim of improving the existing services by offering an innovative view with a solid base in chemical engineering. Professionally, you will be capable of designing efficient and sustainable effluent and residue treatment systems, planning and controlling environmental management systems and applying molecular biology and methodological principles which support microorganisms for applications in the biotechnological sector.
