BSc: 3 years ( 180 ECTS units )

The 2020 Strategy considers bioresources as a fundamental engine for a greener and smart growths. In a world of limited resources, technological innovation is discovering new ways to value, recycle and reuse biological resources. With bioresources we are redefining the way we harvest the sea, forests and industrial goods to develop new energy solutions, consumer products and medicines, while ensuring a sustainable management of the ecosystem.

With the BSc in Bioresources, ISEP trains professionals capable of ensuring a rational and sustainable management of biological resources; the development of bioproducts for the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries; control the quality of bioproducts; and solve environmental challenges like soil and water remediation.

The programme was designed in a multidisciplinary logic, crossing life sciences, physics, environmental and bioresources contents. The course practical outlook is ensured by a heavy lab component and the development of case studies. Students can also benefit from the opportunity to develop their final project in a corporate or research environment.

This innovative BSc in Portugal had its first edition in 2015-2016.

Postgraduate Studies

Graduate students can continue their specialization with the MSc in Bioresources,  MSc in Chemical Engineering ,  MSc in Sustainable Energies  or the  MSc in Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering  .
