About the program

The project general aim is to provide excellent quality and innovative EMJM programme to increase the attractiveness of the European Higher Education Area by internationalization of the education The key subjects and their sequential development in our program prepares graduates to develop sustainable solutions to meet the world’s growing materials and energy demands. 

Teaching objectives:
The first objective

is to train scientists-engineers able to design and develop sustainable technologies for biomass conversion/treatment and bio-products/bio-materials processing. The received level of training should allow them to continue with PhD programs all over the world or to work as leaders in the new developing industry.

The second objective

is to promote excellence, innovation, mobility, diversity as well as complementarities of European Universities and Research Laboratories. This Master program has a unique chance to define a new way of teaching in bio-based products and processes engineering domains in Europe.

The third objective

is to bring highly-motivated third-country students to Europe as well as to provide to European students options in international academic training. The SBBE Master Program Consortium gives to its students a unique chance to interact closely with professors during classes and thesis work. Our rich scientific (Summer School, Invited Scholars) and cultural (European heritage-oriented program) activities are aiming at this goal.

The 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.

Learning objectives:
Fundamental knowledge of an advanced organic chemistry for biobased materials and their in depth analysis.

Project relevance: educate the alumni to be able to perform biomaterial synthesis in laboratory analyse the obtained product by using advanced instrumental equipment.

Engineering knowledge about the design and operation of industrial facilities for the bioproducts processing.

Project relevance: educate the alumni to be able to design, scale up and operate separation and purification processes, biochemical reactors and process control, and do industrial measurements.

Practical knowledge about green technologies involved in the production of the biobased vectors, utilization of biotechniques for green treatment and conversion of biomass.

Project relevance: familiarize the alumni with innovations and strategies for biomass use in variety of applications, e.g. biorefinery, three-dimensional (3D) printing with bioplastics, multipurpose crops valorising residues and biowaste treatment.

Environmental knowledge related to minimizing environmental impacts of bioprocesses and increasing use of bio-based products in order to reduce the dependence on fossil-based ones.

Project relevance: familiarize the alumni with effective raw material utilization, conscious of effect on natural water quantity and quality, greenhouse gas emissions, biodiversity, and soil erosion.

Economic knowledge about cost optimization and energy consumption to increase bio-processes industrial adoption.

Project relevance: familiarize the alumin with live-cycle analysis, concept of circular economy, and how to make bio-process economically feasible and profitable.
