The curriculum provides the necessary skills a biologist must have to understand, analyze and interpret biological processes and standards taking into account the innovative aspects of key scientific areas. The curricular units include appropriate programs and methodologies to develop, not only the specific competences that a biologist should have, but also transverse skills to facilitate their placement in the labour market. Thus, the degree includes a specific course for this purpose in which students have access to an internship in a public or private company where, in an authentic work environment, they will learn to plan and execute a project.
