Interuniversity Master's degree in Science and Technology of Bio and Nanomaterials
Science and Technology of Bio and Nanomaterials is a new 2-year postgraduate degree starting from 2013/14 at Ca' Foscari in collaboration with the University of Verona. We are the first in Italy to offer a programme in these two cutting edge fields in modern science.
 
The aim of the course is to produce graduates with a solid, multidisciplinary background in physics, chemistry and biology and the expertise to work in positions of great responsibility in managing complex processes such as the design, synthesis and characterisation of materials, including biological substances. The curriculum covers fundamental theory as well as laboratory work on preparing and characterising nano and bio materials. In particular, students will deeped their knowledge of the chemical-physical characteristics, properties, preparation methods and applications of nanostructured materials.
 
The course brings together Ca' Foscari University's expertise in nanoscience with the University of Verona's strength in biological sciences. Many of the workshops will be held at the Venetian Science and Technology Park (VEGA), is an ideal setting for this cross-fertilisation of ideas and experiences.

Master's degree in Agri-Food Biotechnology
The Master Degree in Agri-Food Biotechnology offers a high level professional preparation, which can be employed in research activity and development of processes, products and services in the agri-food production chain.
Graduates will be able to solve and manage problems related to agri-food biotechnologies in a sustainable way, including energy and environmental aspects, as well as to deal with the planning and fulfillment of basic research, applied research and technological transfer projects in the industry.
The course offers the possibility to deepen a wide range of scientific disciplines that include Biochemistry and
Molecular Biology, Plant physiology and nutrition, Plant pathology, Plant genetics, Food science also applied to health, Food and Environmental Microbiology, Industrial processes.
In addition to traditional teaching, the Master Degree includes hands-on teaching methods and many credits of laboratory and experimental internship, thanks to which the student will acquire knowledge and skills essential for the development of a project, by defining goals, strategies for implementation and feasibility, as well as experimental checks.

Master's degree in Molecular and Medical Biotechnology
Molecular and medical biotechnology has enormous potential for developing new solutions to improve human health. Through the understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms of diseases, biotechnology plays an essential role in developing drugs, vaccines, therapies and diagnostic tests.
The Master’s degree in Molecular and Medical Biotechnology aims to produce skilled researchers in the field of molecular and cellular biotechnology who are capable of performing biomedical analyses, research and development using experimental and computational approaches. These skills are developed through the study of cellular and molecular biology, genomics and diagnostics, pathology and pharmacology, and computational biology.
The postgraduate programme, which includes an integrated laboratory course based on a current topic in biomedical research, provides students with a solid technical background highlighting the impact of laboratory research on human health. The degree has a single curriculum, but its flexible approach enables students to tailor the programme to their own needs and interests.
 
This programme - which is completely taught in English, allowing you to earn a degree that will be recognised in Italy and abroad, - welcomes international students, combining knowledge and experience from various cultural backgrounds.
 
Graduates will be prepared to enter the workforce in either the public or private sector, or may choose to conduct their profession in consulting and design. Areas of possible employment include research and technological development for public bodies or in the industry (biotech, pharmaceutical, diagnostics, etc.); regulatory activities; the creation and management of biotechnology entities in the public and private sectors; performing directive, management and advisory functions in the pharmacological and biomedical fields; technical and scientific communication and information handling.
Applicants are expected to have basic knowledge and understanding of biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics. A good knowledge of English (at least European B1 level) is also required.

Supervisor: Prof. Alejandro Giorgetti
