Environmental Biotechnology (EnviroBioTech) is mainly focused on the understanding, manipulation and utilization of the potential of the microbial world for the improvement of environmental quality.
The program will be executed in English. The main research areas deal with population dynamics and modeling of biological systems, anaerobic treatment technologies, nutrient removal, morphological, physiological and phylogenetic characterization of microbial communities in environmental systems and biological treatment technologies for industrial wastewaters. The program consists of 5 core and 23 elective courses, making up a pool of 84 credits.
The MSc. Program in EnviroBioTech is a 4 semester program in which, the first 2 semesters are assigned for the courses. The EnviroBioTech MSc. student has to complete minimum 24 credits (min. 8 courses), which will be composed of 5 core courses (15 credits) and 9 elective courses (9 credits), non-credit complementary undergraduate courses (if required) and a non-credit seminar course. The last 2 semesters of the program are assigned for the MSc. Thesis, which will be based on advanced research in relevant EnviroBioTech fields.
