The Master's Programme in Biological and Chemical Engineering for a Sustainable Bioeconomy (Bioceb) is organized by the School of Chemical Engineering. The programme trains future research and innovation managers to tackle the challenges related to the deployment of the bioeconomy across the world. It is targeted at students with a background in fields such as biotechnology, biochemistry, microbiology, biophysics, bioprocess engineerin or molecular biology. This site contains the student study guide for the master's programme with materials and instructions. Here you will find the programme curriculum as well as detailed guidelines for planning your studies.

Bioceb is a European triple degree programme, organized in cooperation between five European universities:

  • Institut des sciences et industries du vivant et de l’environnement (AgroParisTech), coordinator of the programme

  • Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne (URCA)

  • Université de Liège (ULiège)

  • Aalto University

  • Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech)

Students will study at three of these institutions as part of their degree. Aalto University is part of two of the programme's five tracks and students in these tracks will study at Aalto during their second year of studies. The studies at Aalto focus on materials and biopolymers.

Bioceb was labeled an “Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree” by the European Commission in 2019.
