hile some circular economy courses are largely theoretical in nature, the BioTechEco offers a diverse learning experience. The course is split into four semesters over a two-year period. While regular classroom sessions are naturally vital to ensure sufficient opportunity for the rigorous study that the course necessitates, BioEco prides itself as an institution with a strong focus on the practical application of learning.
Students spend a significant amount of time in cutting-edge partner research laboratories in order to gain first-hand experience of these environments and gain the skills required to take their studies further on completion of the course. Furthermore, one semester is spent with one of BioEco’s many international partner universities, giving course participants the opportunity to broaden their horizons – both academically and culturally (something particularly appropriate to gain a truly global picture of the circular economy).
The final semester of the BioTechEco course involves six months spent working in an industrial company or laboratory research team. For potential employers, this is a hugely desirable element of this circular economy master’s, since it ensures that graduates are able to “hit the ground running” when joining the workforce.
Despite its relative newness, BioEco has quickly established itself as a leading circular economy university and is already listed in the ShanghaiRanking of the top 200 global institutions.
