Overview

The MSc course provides advanced learning and develops professional skills for planning and coordinating complex activities in the biotechnology sector. More specifically, upon course completion the student will be able to implement innovative technologies applied to food production and control of food quality and safety. The course is articulated in two separate curricula, the first one (Biotecnologie per l’alimentazione) is taught in Italian, the second one (Biotechnologies for food science) is entirely in English.In the first 18 months (three semesters), students will acquire highly specialized knowledge through lectures and a substantial share of practical lab experience. Such a knowledge will span from biotechnological methods to analysis of agro-food production chain. The last semester is entirely dedicated to experimental activity (lab internship) for the final exam. Lab internship may be carried out at universities, public and private institutions, and private companies that have signed an agreement with the University of Padova, as well as at laboratories abroad that have collaboration or exchange agreements and offer opportunities for research on themes coherent with the MSc course learning goals.

Programme structure

The programme is a study track – held completely in Italian – of the Mater’s degree programme in Biotechnologies for food science

Career opportunities

After successful completion of the MSc course in Biotechnologies for Food Science, our students will have a high professional profile enabling them to occupy positions of responsibility in R&D departments for companies in the biotechnology sector as well as those ones involved in primary production, food processing, food storage, and large retail chains. Additional job opportunities might be found in public and private institutions that are active in food analysis, control, and certification, protection and valorization of typical food products, in higher education institutions, or as self-employed consultants.
