The purpose of the study programme is to train specialists in biotechnology and other related fields. The study focuses on scientific research and its applications in the development of new products and technologies using the biological agent as the basis of the process. Special attention is paid to the specific properties of microbial, plant, and animal cells and to the acquisition of the ability to apply this knowledge in the development of new products. An integral part is the development of new technical (engineering) solutions to biotechnological processes. The study is therefore focused on a comprehensive studying of theoretical knowledge in chemical, biological, engineering and economic sciences, and on gaining practical experience and skills in the field of management and methodology of biotechnological research. Graduates of this programme can participate in basic and applied research at academic institutions and universities, but they can also participate in practice in the Czech Republic and abroad.


The graduates of the doctoral study programme Biotechnology are engaged in scientific research focused primarily on the development and optimization of processes for the production of pharmaceutical products, pure chemicals, biofuels, as well as traditional fermentation products. Other applications are directly in the biotechnology industry and related areas of the food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries, including in the area of bio-waste processing and environmental protection. They can hold managerial positions in development, production, control and design in commercial institutions and state administration bodies. Due to the wide concept of expertise they are prepared not only for professional work in their specialization, but also for easy adaptation to possible work in other technological and natural sciences fields. This DSP fully reflects employers' requirements for university graduates, including language skills. Employers prefer broad, interdisciplinary professional skills for future employees as well as key competencies - so-called “soft knowledge and skills”.

Production of alcohol-free beer in the conditions of a mini-brewery

Department: Department of Biotechnology, Faculty of Food and Biochemical Technology


Currently, two trends are recognizable in brewing. The first is the rapid development of microbreweries. The second trend is the increasing production of non-alcoholic beers, which are not yet produced in mini-breweries. The aim of the work is to research and development of technology for the production of non-alcoholic beers in mini-breweries.

Reactors for in-vitro organs (Bioengineering of in-vitro organs)

Department: Department of Biotechnology, Faculty of Food and Biochemical Technology
Also available in programme: Biotechnologie
Theses supervisor: Ing. Gabriela Kuncová, CSc.


Currently, vast failures of organs, such as liver, lungs, kidney, or the heart might be treated only by a transplantation. Due to critical shortage of donor organs great research attention has been focused to tissue engineering, which employs elements including cells, scaffolds, and growth factors to fabricate functional organs in vitro. As scaffolds have been used both, decellurized organs and artificial porous materials. The aim of the project is a research of reactors for in-vitro cell seeding and cultivation of scaffolds. The study will be done in cooperation with institutions preparing natural and artificial scaffolds, Biomedical Center of Faculty of Medicine of Charles University in Pilsen and Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Czech Academy of Sciences. Experimental work will comprise a study of permeability of scaffolds using non-living particles, and design and verification of functionality of reactors. Required education and skills • Master degree in biotechnology, chemical engineering, physical chemistry, biomedical engineering; • Positive attitude to experimental work in laboratory; • An ability for interdisciplinary cooperation.
