Master's degree in Agri-Food Biotechnology

Bioteconologie agroalimentari


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.

Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS)

As part of the Quality Assurance system, complete, updated and easily available information on objectives, study plan, resources used and results achieved for each degree programme is made available through the SUA-CdS - Scheda Unica Annuale del Corso di Studio (Degree programme annual factsheet). This includes an Overview and three public sections (Learning Objectives, Student Experience, Learning Outcomes) which together provide a wide range of information about each degree programme. The SUA-CdS also contains an administrative section (Administration and Quality Management) that is for internal use only.

The Degree programme annual factsheet (SUA-CdS), which is currently available only in Italian, is a valuable tool that can be used by the University to design, implement and reorganise, as well as to evaluate, each degree programme. However, the SUA-CdS factsheet is also useful for students, to help them choose the right programme of study.
