Study programme annotation: The graduate obtains wide knowledge in natural science and a technical view on the use of acquired knowledge in industrial, medical, pharmaceutical and laboratory practice. A key outcome of the education is an integrated view on the preparation, resp. isolation from natural sources, biological mechanism of action at the cellular and tissue level, toxicological profile, pharmacokinetics and drug testing procedures for their introduction into clinical practice. The graduate knows basic principles and techniques of work in various types of biochemical, biophysical, pharmaceutical laboratories. He/she is able to assess from a chemical point of view the basic properties and biological activity of different synthetic and natural substances, he/she is able to carry out separation into chemical individuals and to realize the synthesis of the target compound. Using physical-analytical methods, he/she can determine the structure of organic, bioorganic, inorganic and bio-organic molecules, as well as the physico-chemical properties of low-molecular and macromolecular biomaterials. The graduate is able to carry out biochemical and toxicological analysis of natural and synthetic substances. The graduate knows technical terminology, understands the meaning of technical texts, he/she communicates at least in one world language at a professional level. He/she has knowledge in the field of current information technology used in the control and management of technological processes. He/she knows how to work in the team and present the results.
The graduate of the program may continue in Master's degrees studies in successive programs or in programs related to specialization. It can be employed in the production, storage and sale of various chemical, biochemical and pharmaceutical materials and chemicals, as well as at the positions of the medical device operator in the medical, pharmaceutical, biofuel production and process industries, natural and synthetic biopolymers, in the field of waste recycling and the use of renewable resources, or the production of new products for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. The graduate is a suitable candidate for the quality control positions of pharmaceutical products in the pharmaceutical industry, the design and preparation of potential drugs and the computer prediction of suitable drugs with targeted properties. The graduate will find work in medical facilities, pharmaceutical companies, biochemical laboratories and chemical synthesis laboratories.
