Study year 2

Degree Programme in Biotechnology (CBIOT), Programme syllabus for studies starting in autumn 2018

The following courses are part of study year two.

The course application codes and study periods are valid for the academic year 2019/2020. For other academic years, different application codes and study periods may apply.


This is a preliminary list of courses for study year 2 for those who started the program 2017. There might be changes. 

Study year 2 consists of mandatory courses and a conditionally elective course. The course BB1170 continues fråm study year 1.

At least three courses of the six conditionally elective courses must be studied under study year 2 and study year 3. See the list below
KD1270 Organic Chemistry, Basic Concepts and Practice 2
SF1626 Calculus in Several Variable 
KE1185 Chemical Engineering Systems
BB1000 Programming in Python

BB1070 Genetics

KD1070 Molecular Structure

You must study KD1270 Organic Chemistry, basic concepts and practice 2 as one of the conditionally elective courses during study year 2 or 3 or use the free elective credits at the master program to be eligible to take the course KD2310 Advanced Organic Chemistry.

The schedule for study year 2 is adapted for the courses KD1270 Organic Chemistry, Basic Concepts and Practice 2 and SF1626 Calculus in Several Variable.
