Applied Biology in Nutritional Sciences
· the basic chemical composition of food, bioavailability of the macro- and micro-nutrients, the energy content and the nutritional quality of foods, modification of food caused by technological and production processes and by environmental contamination;
· biochemistry and physiology of digestion and absorption and the metabolic processes;
· ecology of nutrition; trophic chains, food eco-toxicology and evaluation of the risk; OGM in the alimentary sector;
· alimentary ethology and pathological dysfunctions connected with the alimentation; microbiology, toxycology and hygiene of the foods;.
· legislation and norms, national and communitary, relative to the alimentary politics, to the hygiene and to the control of the foods, to the nutritional overseeing for populations, to the risk of exposure to contaminating agents in the animal and human diets.
In order to be admitted to the programme, candidates must meet minimum curricular requirements and prove adequate knowledge (Ministerial Decree 270/04).
Graduates in Biological Sciences (Class L-13) fully meeting curricular requirements can access the Master's Degree Programme in APPLIED BIOLOGY IN NUTRITIONAL SCIENCES, provided that their course of studies is consistent with the CBUI Italian National Board's guidelines, as duly certified. These guidelines, provided in the CBUI model table, specify the required academic fields and the respective recommended credits (CFU): 66-96 CFU in basic biological disciplines (BIO/01, BIO/02, BIO/04, BIO/05, BIO/06, BIO/07, BIO/09, BIO/10, BIO/11, BIO/18, BIO/19); 12-15 CFU in basic non-biological chemical disciplines (CHIM/01, CHIM/02, CHIM/03, CHIM/06); 15-18 CFU in basic non-biological mathematical, physical and computer science disciplines (MAT/01-09, FIS/01-08 and INF/01).
The programme can also be accessed by graduates of the same class (L-13), who have not followed a course of studies in line with the CBUI's guidelines, or of class L-12 - Biological Sciences pursuant to Ministerial Decree 509/99, or of other classes, as long as they meet certain curricular requirements. More specifically, they must have earned an adequate number of CFU (normally not less than 93 CFU) in groups of academic fields equivalent or similar to those listed in the table for class L-13 - Biological Sciences across non-biological and basic biological disciplines, according to a quantitative logic similar to that of the above mentioned CBUI criteria.
In order to meet CFU requirements, you can sit for the relevant exams at our or other universities before enrolling in the MDP.
For information on unmet curricular requirements, please send your curriculum for assessment to the MDP Coordinator, or to firstname.lastname@example.org well in advance (even during the Bachelor's degree programme), so that you can take the necessary exams in time.
For all categories of candidates, adequate knowledge and personal skills will be key for admission and will be assessed by a written test and possibly an individual interview.
