Route 3 Bachelor Biotech Engineering: Diagnostics and bioinformatics

The course allows the implementation and development of diagnostic techniques and the application of bioinformatics tools. The diagnostics and bioinformatics technician works alongside researchers and engineers in research and development (R&D) or the design office. The diagnostic and bioinformatics aspects are directly related to EBI’s expertise in the field of bioindustries and the development of research projects in production, development, research and entrepreneurship

The program

The 3-year Bachelor Biotech Engineering course offers 4 semesters of courses spread over 14 weeks each. The students follow a solid theoretical training reinforced by a practical application with 40% of the teaching in the form of practical work or project. A 4-month internship during the second year and a 6-month internship (6th semester) will complete the curriculum.
