Program description

The Life Science & Technology program prepares students for careers in biotechnological, food, biopharmaceutical industries, health care and fundamental research institutions.

The cell is the building block of life - the smallest unit with the characteristics of living systems. Life Science & Technology draws on fundamental and applied knowledge from the disciplines of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Technology, Informatics, Pharmacology and Mathematics to unlock the secrets of the cell and understand its mechanisms.

This offers great promise not only on the theoretical level, but also for very practical applications: in developing cleaner industrial processes, better medicines, and more effective methods for combating diseases, in facilitating the isolation of enzymes for the development of improved foodstuffs, and in countless other applications.

This programme aims to equip you with knowledge and expertise on the fundamental level and to familiarise you with the technologies inherent to practical applications of that knowledge. As a graduate of the programme, you will be prepared for a career in either an industrial or an academic environment. Career opportunities for graduates of the programme abound in biotechnological, food, and biopharmaceutical industries, the healthcare profession.

Objectives
This multidisciplinary programme combines fundamental and applied knowledge in biology, chemistry, physics, (bio)technology, informatics, pharmacology & mathematics; equips students with scientific knowledge and expertise; prepares graduates for careers in industry and academic environments, ie biotechnological, food, biopharmaceutical industries, health care and fundamental research institutions.
