Since 2001, the Faculty has been participating in a 3-year vocational studies programme “Job Creation Oriented Biotechnology Diploma” coordinated by the University of Perugia. Every year, around 50% of the students of the Intercollegiate Faculty of Biotechnology take part in the international exchange under the Socrates/Erasmus Programme.

The Faculty was accredited by the State Accreditation Committee (2005) and by the University Accreditation Committee (2002, 2007). In the ranking of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Faculty has always been awarded the first place, while press rankings place it every year among the three best institutions offering studies in biotechnology.

The Faculty is proud of its 14 independent academic research workers, 6 of whom are professors and 26 are PhD-level staff.

The Faculty’s research teams participate in projects 5 and 6 of the Framework Programme, as well as other national and international projects, primarily in the scope of molecular diagnostics of human, plant and animal diseases. Between the years 2001 and 2005, the Intercollegiate Faculty of Biotechnology was the coordinator of the “BioMoBiL” Centre of Excellence, financed within the 5th framework project of the European Union. The Faculty is also a member and co-founder of the ScanBalt association bringing together “life science” colleges, clinics and companies from Scandinavian and Baltic countries.

The Faculty’s laboratories are equipped with modern facilities, including confocal microscopes, flow cytometers, DNA sequencers, fermenters, devices for breeding and cryopreservation of bacterial, plant and animal cells, gel documentation systems, ultra whirlpools, simple and gradient thermocyclers, as well as Real-Time PCR.
