Levels of higher education. Training of students at the FBT is carried out at three levels of higher education.

At the first level (Bachelor's course, I–IV academic years), the students acquire fundamental knowledge in chemistry, physics, mathematics, mechanics, computer engineering, and special disciplines. During the fourth year, they prepare and defend the bachelor’s thesis and acquire a bachelor's degree.

At the second level, (Master’s course, I-II academic years) students acquire relevant professional skills including laboratory practice. Applicants prepare and defend a master's theses and acquire a master's degree.

The third educational-scientific level – postgraduate studies, I-IV academic years. Applicants defend their dissertations and they are awarded the educational qualification of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.).

Terms of training: Bachelor – 4 years; Master (education-professional program) – 1.5 years; Master (education-scientific program) – 2 years: Ph.D. – 4 years.

1. Department of Industrial Biotechnology and Biopharmacy provides training under the following Educational Programs:

The department provides scientific and engineering personnel for the biotechnological, biochemical, and chemical industries, food industries, research, and design institutions of the biological and chemical profile, sanitary inspections, firms and institutions that produce food additives and veterinary drugs, control and production laboratories, control and analysis laboratories, certification centers.

Future specialists-biotechnologists are getting three educations: chemical, engineering, and biological. In addition to general scientific and engineering disciplines, students study such disciplines as microbiology and virology, biochemistry, genetics, cell and genetic engineering, immunology, general biotechnology, and fundamentals of pharmaceutical production.

Graduates of the department are working at the leading pharmaceutical and biotech companies of Ukraine, certification laboratories, and biocontrol. They are developing biologically active drugs at the Institute of Microbiology and Virology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Biochemistry, and others. 

2. Department of Biotechnics and Engineering provides training under the following Educational Programs:


 The department trains professionals who are well versed in foreign and domestic equipment of pharmaceutical and microbiological industries, and due to this:

  • perform engineering for the implementation of the equipment in domestic plants and factories with subsequent maintenance and service;
  • design new equipment for pharmaceutical and microbiological industries for production at domestic machine-building plants.

Graduates of the department are successfully working at the leading enterprises of Kyiv: PJSC "Darnytsia", JSC "Farmak", "Rosynka", PJSC "Biofarma", "Kyiv Winery of Sparkling Wines", PJSC SIC "Borshchahivskyi CPP".

3. Department of Bioenergy, Bioinformatics and Environmental Biotechnology provides training to specialists under the following Educational Programs:

Bioinformatics makes it possible to simulate biotechnological processes at the stages of development of industrial technologies and to analyze and predict the properties of new biological structures and molecules.

 In addition to the basic disciplines of biological, chemical, and engineering areas students study modern technologies of waste processing of different origins and specially grown biomass into the energy and useful substances that can replace existing synthetic analogs obtained with the use of natural gas and oil.

Students study the new wastewater treatment technology and the design of treatment plants and bioreactors.

At the Department, genetic engineering techniques are used to obtain bacteria, plants, and other organisms with desired properties for use in environmental biotechnology to increase the energy output.

The department has the following research laboratories:

  • Laboratory of Physical and Information Technologies in Biology and Medicine;
  • Laboratory of Magnetic Nanotechnology in Medicine and Biology;
  • Laboratory of Vacuum Technology in Biology and Medicine.

The department is provided with modern equipment such as a probe scanning microscope NanoEducator, centrifuge apparatus, the chamber for horizontal electrophoresis, apparatus for determining the magnetic susceptibility of magnetically sorbents and magnetic pharmaceutical forms, apparatus for producing high-gradient ferromagnetic attachments by electrodeposition in a magnetic field and by magnetically controlled corrosion, photocolorimeters KFK-2, thermostat, pH-meter, sterilizer, potentiostat, biological microscopes. All above-mentioned equipment is used for carrying out the educational process and in the performance of research works of students and graduate students, as well as for scientific research of the department. Graduates of the department can work in the biochemical and biotechnological production of pharmaceutical chemicals companies, in the food industry, in the research and design institutions of biological, medical, and chemical areas, diagnostic laboratories, and research centers for the creation of new drugs.
