Biomolecular Sciences

Opbouw programma

Programme options within the field of Biomolecular Sciences:

Chemical Biology (specialization) comprising of 20 ECTS in specialized courses: https://www.rug.nl/ocasys/rug/vak/showpos?opleiding=4554. The selective Master's programme is specifically designed for students primarily aiming for a career in research and who are able to keep up with the study pace of the cohort that starts in September.

Students who would like to make a start during the academic year and/or aim for a career in science, business or policy are referred to our Master's programme Biology: www.rug.nl/masters/biology

This is a 2-year programme; credits per year: 60 ECTS; most courses are 5 ECTS. The programme tracks starts with a series of advanced courses on the state-of the-art in the research field (20-30 ECTS), followed by a series of optional specialist-topic or skills-courses that are tailored to the individual preferences of the student (10-20 ECTS). A large part of the programme is devoted to two research projects in which the students are fully embedded in a research group of their choice, to conduct their own research. To guarantee optimal supervision and a first-class research environment, the first project (30-40 ECTS) has to be carried out at the University of Groningen. The second project (30 EC) should be conducted in a different research group, either at the University of Groningen or elsewhere, to learn new techniques and scientific approaches, and to extend the scientific network. If desired, this second project can be done abroad.

    Improving enzymes to make them suitable for use in industry (research example)

    The group of our Prof. Dr. Marco Fraaije at the University of Groningen is involved in a project called ROBOX co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation. The ROBOX project brings together leading experts from Europe's top universities together with the biotechnology industry. Cutting edge biotechnology is brought to the next level to eventually replace classical chemical processes with biotechnology using enzymes - nature's most sophisticated machines.
