The master's Biobased Sciences focuses on the transition from a petrochemical to a biobased and circular economy. This master’s zooms in on four main aspects to come to a sustainable transition: economic, technical, social and environmental aspects. The programme is interdisciplinary. It includes both biomass production, bioconversion, biorefinery and societal, logistic and economic transition processes.
The master's Biobased Sciences is a two-year programme. In the first year you will start with two foundation courses: Biobased Economy and Circular Economy. These courses focus on important aspects when designing a biobased and/or circular economy. During this year you will also follow the course Academic Consultancy Training. The rest of the courses in the first year you can choose yourself, partly within your chosen specialisation.
The second year of the master's will consist of a master thesis and an internship at one of the thesis groups that fits your specialisation.
You will develop expertise in one of the three disciplines, but also have knowledge about the other two disciplines.
