The main objective of the study is to train highly educated professionals in the field of biophysical chemistry, intended for independent creative, scientific and research activity. The objective of biophysical chemistry, as a field of science, is to provide physical-chemical and biochemical explanations of functions and activity of biological systems. The student is taught to independently formulate a scientific problem, suggest hypotheses and methods for its solution and perform experimental or theoretical trials to verify it. An integral part of the studies is a training of skills for critical assessment of published scientific information and abilities to express themselves, in writing and verbally, in English professional language.
The study program focuses on an independent creative activity in the field of biophysical chemistry, includes both, theoretical and experimental work and prepares the graduates for scientific and research activity. The studies are realized in cooperation with a foreign partner in the form of a “joint degree”. The key parts of studies are physical-chemical and biochemical rudiments of biological processes and biomaterials. These are further developed according the selected theme of a thesis in the field of biocolloid chemistry, nanobiotechnology, biophysical instrumental techniques, immunochemistry, technology of biomaterials. Students enroll subjects, theoretical and laboratory activities in the way to meet requirements of the FCH BUT and a specific foreign partner.
A graduate of the program is a professional with high competences, able to participate in highly qualified scientific research activity based on physical-chemical and biochemical principles and processes, especially at universities and Academy of Science, research institutions, but also in the industrial research. The graduate is capable of independent creative activity in the field of biophysical chemistry. Thanks to the wide range of uses of biophysical chemistry, graduates can very well employ not only in the fields of biophysical-chemical research, but also in other fields of healthcare or studies of living systems. Thanks to the compulsory internship and the obligation to present results in international magazines, they can also find employment at similar positions abroad.
The main objective of the study is to train highly educated professionals in the field of biophysical chemistry, with sufficient experiences from abroad, intended for the independent creative, scientific and research activity. The graduate is able to independently formulate a scientific problem, suggest hypotheses and methods for its solution and perform experimental or theoretical trials to verify it. An integral part of the studies is a training of skills for critical assessment of published scientific information and abilities to express themselves in common and professional English language, in writing and verbally, and work in an international team.
Pursuant to the European Qualifications Framework, the outcomes of the study in doctoral degree study program meet the highest level – the EQF 8 level, which characterizes graduates as highly educated individuals in the field, eventually in the interdisciplinary problematics, who masters specialized and highly advanced techniques, are able to independently solve problems, show authority, innovative potential and academic and professional integrity, develop new processes for the work, studies or research.
Come and grasp the unique opportunity to participate in top research and development
The Faculty of Chemistry welcomes students and visitors from all over the world. Our aim is to maintain inspiring international environment that is why the faculty has currently almost 50 bilateral agreements with institutions around the world. We actively promote international exchange within the Erasmus+ framework. Among our partner institutions are University of Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris, Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim or University of Applied Sciences in Dresden.
An attractive part of the study at FCH are the laboratory projects that are led by our scholars in English in various areas of research. They are offered in both winter and summer semester and are open to both bachelor’s and master’s degree students.
Examples of current project topics open for students and trainees: Characterization of organic compounds, Research and development of modern hydrogel materials, Plasma chemistry, Environmental analysis, Photochemistry and photocatalysis, Biocolloids, Scrubber absorption, Physical microbiology and Organic electronics and photovoltaics.
FCH also participates in the successful International Staff Week organized by Brno University of Technology as well as encourages its students and academics to gain foreign experience and participate in international activities at FCH BUT.
