The Doctoral Program in Biotechnology and Bioengineering (EDBB) aims at providing doctoral students with the education necessary to be leaders in the fast-growing industrial and academic biotechnology and bioengineering sectors, i.e. a depth of knowledge and competence in their specific research area as well as a breadth of knowledge in biology, bioengineering and biotechnology.
The combination of coursework, laboratory based research, in-house seminars, and national and international conferences, etc. will form the basis of this education.
