    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The degree programme in Biology Applied to Nutrition Science produces professional figures with advanced training in the following areas: biological applications in the field of nutrition; the interaction between food and environment; food resource hygiene and quality; control procedures; and food certification.

    Course highlights:

    On the strength of the biological training that they receive in the field of nutrition, graduates are equipped to handle problems that arise as a result of rapid developments in the environmental, cultural, regulative and technological aspects of nutrition. Through this training pathway, the degree programme aims to respond to a clear-cut new call for competences in the field of bio-nutrition which, while traditionally associated with the professional figure of the biologist, now continue to expand.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    research activities in the field of bio-nutrition research activities in the food industry and in specific sectors associated with the protection of public health activities connected with food resource optimisation, conservation and safety processes activities associated with control, accreditation and certification procedures for public and private facilities and laboratories, in compliance with European provisions marketing in the relevant industry managerial positions in public and private laboratories freelance activities in related sectors (e.g. nutritional consultancy for the development of optimal diets for the community and the individual) managerial positions in the field of large-scale food distribution the diffusion and publishing of knowledge in the field of bio-nutrition, for institutional operators or the general population.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Applied Biology is the understanding of how organisms work from subcellular to whole organism level. It also involves the use of living organisms (mostly microbes) to produce useful products. It includes traditional processes like brewing, cheesemaking and modern developments such as genetic engineering which can lead to new drugs against cancer and other diseases.

    Course highlights:

    provide students with the scientific skills, theoretical and modern practical skills to work in areas such as biopharmaceutical, food and environmental sectors.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    put more effort in the course involve in group discussions, self assessments also help alot

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Students in the Applied Biology Program explore the real-world application of the life sciences to the management of land, animals and food production.** The program emphasizes critical thinking, practical involvement, and a systems approach that integrates technical knowledge with sustainability and ethics. The Program equips graduates with the skills and knowledge to become leaders in sustainable food production and the responsible use of land, water and animals.

    Course highlights:

    Applied Biology is the understanding of how organisms work from sub cellular to whole organism level. It also involves the use of living organisms (mostly microbes) to produce useful products. It includes traditional processes like brewing, cheese making and modern developments such as genetic engineering which can lead to new drugs against cancer and other diseases.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    it takes hard work , passion and background information in science as its a demanding course eand time consuming. So if you are not ready to sacrifice please do not try. But it give an overwhelming experience in the field of food production, disease and pest identification
