Environmental biotechnology is a course that engages itself in the application of modern biotechnologies in industry and the effects they have on the environment. You will learn to utilise microorganisms in modern industrial technologies and you will understand their role in the creation and protection of the environment. Modern advancements to acquire and process minerals, purification of waste waters and old ecological encumbrances will not be foreign to you. Most of your subjects will have a natural scientific character, the most crucial of which being microbiology, biotechnology, mineralogy, environmental informatics and environment protection. After finishing your studies you will become an expert on technologies of bioprocesses connected to the processing of minerals and environment protection. Your field of activity could be a laboratory in a research facility, a biotechnological or pharmaceutical company or civil service in the area of environmental protection. Even though the course is only listed as a bachelor program, you could continue your master studies with the Mineral Biotechnologies course or any other environmentally focused course.
