Bioengineering & Biotechnology
The Master course in Safety assessment of xenobiotics and biotechnological products provides specific knowledge in the analysis and the assessment of risk, taking into account the current international standards. The students will acquire the knowledges necessary to initiate research on the novel methodologies to be applied in the field of risk assessment and to achieve professional competence in assessing risks arising from production and use of chemicals and biotechnological products, through integrated training in legislation, chemistry, toxicology and pharmacology, biotechnology, and risk analysis.
The professional profiles generated will be employed by:
The Master Course in Safety Assessment of Xenobiotics and Biotechnological Products (SAXBi) is entirely taught in English.
Application and admission: Open, subject to entry requirements.
Students meeting the above minimum requirements are invited to an interview for admission (in English) with the Commission for Admittance to the Master, composed by teaching members appointed by the Teaching Board. The interview, done remotely via electronic devices if necessary, is aimed at verifying the above mentioned skills and the knowledge of the English Language equivalent to B2 level.
Thanks to mobility programs such as Erasmus +, Erasmus Placement, and Erasmus Mundus, the Master Course in SAXBi offers its students the opportunity to spend periods of training abroad. The Erasmus Placement Program also offers the opportunity to play an internship abroad at companies, universities or other organizations. Universities and Institutions partners involved in these programs offer the possibility to engage in a wide range of areas. In the mobility period, the student can:
Each student is followed by a tutor identified within the Course.
Procedure for the recognition of study periods abroad: each student must propose a Learning Agreement regarding training activities that lead to the recognition of a number of credits adequate to the period spent abroad, namely:
The period of study abroad will be recognized as valid after obtaining at least 70% of the credits specified in the learning agreement, while the activity of the thesis or internship will be valid only after acquisition of all credits.
For students who have accomplished satisfactorily the training program, there are appropriate incentives, proposed by the teacher in charge, will be paid by the Faculty in the diploma achievement session. It provides additional points to the degree mark varying from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 3 points depending on the duration of the study period, the amount of credits attained, and the overall results obtained by the student
