Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Scientific skills
    • In response to situations and aware of the methodological limitations: - Use common techniques of biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, studies of tissues and organs (i.e. link a macroscopic phenomenon to microscopic processes). - Use an experimental device in a biological model, know and use the concepts and techniques of animal physiology.
  • Professional integration skills
    • Work in teams in different contexts including with people from different disciplines, integrate, fit in, collaborate, communicate and report
    • Work independently: - Get organised, manage time and priorities, assess themself. - Master assessment methods. - Continue learning individually, prepare to educate themselves throughout life. - Demonstrate abstract thinking. - Be introduced to project management. - Show initiative.
