The focus of the Second Cycle Master’s Degree in Sustainable Industrial Pharmaceutical Biotechnology (SIPhaB) is on the industrial biotech-pharma sector, where Italy ranks first in Europe for export and production and first in the world for innovative contracts.
In order to keep the competitive advantage, a paradigmatic change is necessary in education, where crucial elements must be included on socio-environmental-economic sustainability as well as on the deep digital transformation of Health and Industry 4.0.
SIPhaB is a unique novel educational programme conjugating bio-chemical with management and sustainable development knowledge. To effectively conjugate know and know how we have co-designed SIPhaB with humanistic and economic departments and with our industrial partners.
SIPhaB programme provides wide educational time to stages, seminars and webinars in collaboration with extra-academic and industrial world on issues otherwise uncovered in any other university programme.
We adopt innovative and immersive teaching methods, exploiting industrial territorial labs, favoring the developing of passion, interest, curiosity, emotional understanding, ability of team working versus conventionally individual university programmes. We propose a novel integrated and flexible educational model.
The course is entirely taught in English.
MIUR degree class: LM-8 Second cycle degree in Industrial Biotechnologies
Duration in years: 2
