The overall structure of the programmes for the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Bioengineering) and the Master in Bioengineering clearly reflect the
concepts of specialization, gradual choice and individualization of the courses.
2nd cycle (Master) :
• choice of three Masters in Bioengineering with a professional focus, together with twelve option courses which partly overlap, optional subjects (either free choice or from the lists) and a final individual dissertation.
The twelve option courses, which partly overlap at the level of the three Masters in Bioengineering, correspond to fields of activity identified on the basis of a wide-ranging survey of graduates of the Faculty working professionally and of contacts with potential employers.
The interdisciplinarity and the integrated approach are key dimensions in the training of bioengineers in chemistry and bioindustry. This is reflected by :
Training for research. through research, which is essential for conceptual and innovative awareness and developing intellectual rigour, is reflected by different types of activities :
The application of skills, knowledge and techniques that students have acquired and how they use them together is taken into account in an integrated project in applied chemistry and biology. This is an important learning activity supplements the dissertation which, in the view of the Faculty, remains the most important part of training for research.
Through the close connection between the teaching and research, the development of new tools and new approaches is the subject of advanced training from the beginning of the 2nd cycle and is therefore central to this Master programme (e.g. biotechnology and nanotechnology). All this enables graduates of this programme to be able to make rapid use of new techniques and approaches in their early professional experience.
Students are assessed according to the activities in the programme : this can take the form of written and/or oral examinations as well as individual and/or group work.
Further details about how the assessment is done can be found in the course specifications.
