Profile of the programme
Food science and biotechnologies form the background of the graduate at the branch. Biologically and physically oriented sciences necessary for the development of the food science are accentuated in the course of the study. The knowledge of applied microbiology, bioengineering, foodstuff hygiene and sanitation is attained in the relation to the basic courses of the study. The knowledge of instrumental analytical chemistry is extended at the course of foodstuff analysis. The graduates are employable in agriculture and foodstuff industry of the Moravian and Silesian regions, in the biotechnological processes of the chemical and pharmaceutical industries and in the new braches of environmental protection. Employability at the institution of the state control, new technology development, research and business is also possible.
Key learning outcomes
Students will have theoretical overview as well as practical skills in the field of natural sciences that are the base for the study of principal subjects in the field of chemistry and technology of foodstuffs. Graduates in the branch “Food Science” will be prepared to ensure the production of high quality and safe foodstuffs in food-processing industry. Their knowledge of chemical composition of food sources and of modern analytical methods will enable them to work in state administration control bodies.
The study branch “Biotechnology” offers more knowledge and skills in scientific disciplines that are based on instruction of modern biotechnological subjects.
Access to further studies
The graduates may continue in a doctoral study programme.
