Biotechnology

Training program

  • Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, managed by Elena Alexandrovna Krasnokutskaya, Head of N.M. Kizhner's Scientific and Educational Center, Engineering School of New Production Technologies, +7 (3822) 706349; +7 (3822) 701777 x 1487; Building No. 2, office 309, eak@tpu.ru.

The program provides training for biotechnological engineers – unique specialists in their field. Masters are able to conduct research work, expanded by the competencies of production and technological activities.

The graduates focus on microorganisms, cell cultures of animals and plants, viruses, enzymes, biologically active chemicals; devices and equipment for the study of their properties; biomass, installations and equipment for biotechnological processes; quality control of raw materials, semi-finished products and finished products; regulations for the production of biotechnology products, international standards.

Students attend lectures delivered by leading experts, work in laboratories equipped with modern equipment. Production practices are held at large specialized operational facilities.

The training program includes the study of general scientific and general professional disciplines, special modules, and professional English.
