Koulutuksen kuvaus

The Bachelor studies in Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering is a combination of chemistry and technology, and to some content also biology in the case of Biotechnology and Food Engineering studies. The area includes production of many useful commodities in respect to society and common welfare, such as food, fuels, medical products, cosmetics and paints. Prospective carriers are often found in connection to development and manufacturing of these products, as well as environmental monitoring.

Good scientific knowledge is a quality of the graduated engineer and is developed during the studies. The first year studies are the same for all students.

During the second academic semester the professional major is chosen among three alternatives:
• Biotechnology and Food Engineering
• Chemical Engineering
• Materials and Surface Engineering

In addition to the professional major the student chooses a module from some other degree programme or one or two interdisciplinary elective modules, which are connected to her/his personal interests and goals. These studies support wide-ranging, and the diverse range ensures that the graduated engineer has a strong, applied and environmentally friendly measure of the field.

The studies include a 20-week guided work placement and a Bachelor’s thesis during the final year of study.

Pedagogiset toimintatavat

Feedback on the implementation of the curriculum is collected from the Degree Programme's Advisory Board, as well as students and partner companies. The feedback on the basis of the curriculum and implementations are developed every year.




Key learning outcomes

The basis of the competence goal is a good knowledge of mathematics and science and the application of this knowledge in the fields of biotechnology and food engineering, chemical engineering and materials technology and surface engineering.

At the beginning of the studies, the aim is to create an overall perception of the business operations, job opportunities and technical industrial solutions in the above-mentioned fields of technology.

Biotechnical and chemical engineers should have a good knowledge of the following:
• behaviour of substances and materials, for example different states and operating conditions
• corrosion prevention
• foodstuffs and biomaterials as well as raw materials and intermediate products
• design and control of production processes
• laboratory analytics
• environmental, quality, safety, and health aspects of all operations
