How is it structured?
The programme lasts 18 months: one year of
classes, which takes place in the host university, and one semester of
research project and thesis, in another university of a different country.
The structure of the course was
designed so that students acquire the three general skills essential for
managing a laboratory successfully: technical, managing and statistical
skills. Lectures are organized in three disciplines:
- Analytical methods
- Data analysis
- Quality management
All classes are optional. Students take
30 modules and must fulfill a minimum of 5 modules from each discipline.
According to his/her background, each student can choose from a wide
range of options fitting his/her professional and personal interests,
namely in water analysis, food analysis or clinical analysis.
