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

The following courses are part of study year three.

The course application codes and study periods are valid for the academic year 2020/2021. 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 2018. There might be changes.

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

At least three courses of the conditionally elective courses must be studied under study year 2 and study year 3. See the list below
