Program description

Master in Biotechnology of Environment and Health

The Master in Biotechnology of Environment and Health (Máster Universitario en Biotecnología del Medio Ambiente y la Salud – MBEH) is a multidisciplinary proposal destined to broaden knowledge in the biotechnological applications related to the environment and health. In particular, the MBEH concentrates on the study of the effects of environmental changes on health, a powerful subdiscipline of the newly arisen subject called environmental health.
The study program has been designed to give to the students solid knowledge in the basic scientific and technical principles of biotechnology applied to the analysis of the chemical and biological risks that affect the environment and health. The early detection, the prevention and the evaluation of risks, together with the use of modern biotechnological techniques for the preservation of the environment and health, make up the core of the masters.
The course also includes instruction in management and marketing of biotechnology, on intellectual and industrial property, environmental laws, as well as professional skills and ethical principles with regard to biotechnological activities.
The course will be mainly in English with some relevant parts in Spanish. The complete Master´s program is organised in two years for those students who are interested in obtaining a doctorate degree and for those who wish to follow a professional career with a biotechnological profile.

Admission requirements

Graduates in Biotechnology or in related disciplines such as Biology, Chemistry, Chemical engineering, Pharmacy and Medicine, amongst others, who wish to acquire training as professionals in the field of Biotechnology, or who are interested in continuing their education in a doctorate program (the first year is enough in the later case for Spanish licenciados).
Professionals from different fields interested in widening their knowledge about biotechnological applications related to the environment and health.
