BIOTECHNOLOGY FOR THE BIOECONOMY
In this context, the BforB Master degree aims at providing students with advanced molecular and cellular background of microbial and plant systems, which are the basis for the several sectors of the biotechnologies applied to the bioeconomy. The BforB Master degree will equip students with a solid and broad expertise about the structure and function of biological macromolecules of interest for the bioeconomy sector. In addition, the BforB Master degree will provide theoretical and practical instruments for the set up, analyses and improvement of biotechnological processes for the transformation of renewable raw materials in biotechnological processes exploiting microorganisms, plant systems and enzymes.
The BforB Master degree will be taught entirely in English, providing the students with knowledge and competences that can be spent at European and extra European level, at which the bioeconomy sector is faced. Moreover, the English language will allow the participation of students from out of Italy, making the Master degree a stimulant learning environment.
More in detail, the BforB graduate is an expert in planning, development, analyses and control of processes for:
· Industrial fermentation for production of metabolites and renewable energy
· plant and microbial cell as biofactories for molecules of interest in the fine chemical and polymer industry, agro-food and pharmaceutical industry with particular application to the green chemistry and bio-based industry
· bioremediation of contaminated land and waters, using plants and/or microorganisms
· innovative diagnosis tools, applied in particular to the traceability in agro-food chain
The employment opportunities for the BforB graduate are in research bodies (both public and private) and bio-based chemical, pharmaceutical, agro-food, and biotechnological enterprises.
Students with a degree from non-Italian institution: the candidates must possess a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or University, and strong knowledge in the following areas: molecular biology, genetics, microbiology, plant cell biology, biochemistry, chemistry.
All students must have a good knowledge of spoken and written English as a mandatory prerequisite to enrolment, certified by one of the following:
· Bachelor degree obtained in an international English bachelor course (provide a certification at application for admission)
· B2 level certification (vantage or upper intermediate, as defined by the Common European Framework of reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment; recognised certifications: http://www.unimi.it/cataloghi/slam/CertificazioniENG_Apr2018.pdf)
· A B2 result in the placement test given by the University of Milan on September 24th, 2019. Students that will not provide a valid certification at the admission application will be contacted by the course secretariat to sustain the English placement test. Who will not attend the test will not have any other possibility to obtain the English certification by the University of Milan and will mandatorily need to obtain a certification from an external accredited institution within December 2019, 31st.
Calls for participation can be found at the following link: http://www.unimi.it/studenti/erasmus/79224.htm. The time spent abroad can be used to attend courses and pass the relative exams, thus collecting credits towards the Master degree, as well as to carry out the experimental project for the dissertation. The student admitted to the mobility program must submit a study plan detailing the training activities that he/she plans to carry out, with the corresponding credits. The number of credits should correspond as much as possible to the number of credits that the student should acquire in a similar span of time at the home University. The proposed activities must be consistent with the goals and the contents of the Master degree. The study plan must be approved by the BforB Student Mobility Committee, which can request changes or integrations. At the end of the mobility program, according to the guidelines provided by the University of Milan, the courses (with a passed exam) and laboratory trainings attended by the student are registered in his/her career, with its original name and with an indication of the ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) and their conversion in CFU (usually 1 ECTS= 1 CFU). The students willing to carry out their dissertation work as part of a mobility program abroad must have an internal supervisor (chosen among the BforB lecturers) and the study plan must be approved by the BforB board.
Le tasse universitarie per gli studenti iscritti ai corsi di laurea, di laurea magistrale e di laurea magistrale a ciclo unico sono composte da due rate con modalità di calcolo e tempi di pagamento diversi:
- la prima rata è uguale per tutti
- la seconda rata, detta contributo onnicomprensivo, è di importo variabile in base al tipo di corso, al reddito familiare, al merito, al corso di laurea e allo stato della carriera.
Per conoscere l’importo della seconda rata è disponibile il simulatore online. Si possono inoltre consultare gli esempi e la modalità di calcolo
- agevolazioni per gli studenti con elevati requisiti di merito
- importi diversificati in base al paese per gli studenti internazionali con reddito e patrimonio all'estero
- agevolazioni per gli studenti internazionali con status di rifugiato politico
