Students receive a high-quality training and achieve qualification in the field of chemical engineering combined with bio-processing. They should be prepared for studies at Ph.D. level or for working in industry. The overall structure of the SBBE Master is a combination of courses with the intention of offering a dual scientific/engineering education. The mobility scheme and the course structure are based on a progressive learning from basic modules to specialization.

Duration: The duration of the Master program is 2 years. The program is designed as follows:

• 3 academic study semesters, one at each of the three European Partner Universities according to the mobility scheme. The language of instruction is English

• 1 semester for the Master thesis research project

• Summer School takes place after the second semester

• 1 month internship during the summer between semesters 2 and 3 (optional)



Bioproducts and bio-based industry development has been identified as one of the motors of industrial growth in Europe inside the Horizon 2020 and other European initiatives. It results from the fact that bio-based materials processes are making big promises as environmentally friendly. The demand for clean technologies related to the use of bioprocesses for biofuels, biobased chemicals and products is included in many sustainable development directives. Several-fold increase of markets for bio-based raw materials and new consumer products will create a large demand for specialists in bioproducts engineering. Consequently, the bio-mass conversion specialists will be highly demanded by the industry to develop engineering solutions of

bio-products manufacturing.

The SBBE Master aims at preparing specialists in the field of sustainable biomass and bioproducts engineering.


Career Opportunities:

The SBBE Program aims at preparing specialists in the field of sustainable biomass and bioproducts engineering.

The competences of a graduate of the SBBE EMJM are:

• Thorough knowledge of the principles of biomaterials composition and synthesis methodology.

• Ability and skills to synthesize biomaterials and appropriate analysis of its properties.

• Thorough knowledge of modelling and processes simulation methods.

• Advanced knowledge on present biorefining processes and Capacity to modernize the present technologies and develop the new ones.

• Capacity to promote and to develop scientific and technological innovation in a frame of circular economy.

• Possibility of making a critical analysis of scientific information

• Capacity of technical and economic evaluation of a project of innovation and research

• Aptitude to occupy leading positions in science and engineering

• Ability to integrate in a professional organization and develop ethics and responsibility

• Capacity to work effectively in a team project.

Beside professional knowledge, the proposed program offers transversal skills development that allows students to get awareness of ethical issues, EU legislative framework, and intellectual property rights as well as gain skills in communication, decision taking and collective actions.
