School of Life Science

The Institute of Chemistry and Biology educates professionals in the natural sciences specialties that means a student dives into the world of chemistry, biology, biomedicine, and is constantly present in the modern bio- and chemical technology environment. That is why we opted for the integration of science and education as well as introduction of a large number of project activities. Naturally, we do not forget about the academic education including not only the basic or special disciplines. Special focus is on our students’ skills to present themselves and their projects which is not the least role in the achievement of a brilliant professional. Our Institute implements all stages of education, from the Bachelor’s Programme to the postgraduate training programme.

Of course, whatever direction is chosen by our students, they will be able to fulfil their potential not only in the real economy but also in science and the development sector.

One of our key objectives is to develop the students’ ability and desire to ‘be creative’, generate new products and ‘add value’, as it is common to say now. By immersing our students in an environment of research and development, we rely on our research laboratories and staff (many of whom are scientists of world reputation). The project activities in the modern world represent the main form of creating whatsoever, from a new phone model to political processes. For that reason, we could not fail to make our projects provide the basis for our students’ skills and knowledge.

Junior students will carry out theoretical projects on the fundamental and applied aspects of chemistry and biology; a task is prepared for third-year students to perform until graduation. In contrast to the conventional degree work, a project involves interaction with a potential employer and the fulfilment of real and not academic subjects. In addition, within the framework of a project, students will be assigned tasks to develop project presentations, project reports, cost estimates etc. Thus, we make the learning process as close as possible to real life, and the work on projects means the hands-on experience.

The Institute for the Humanities
