Forming engineers in the current technological context requires a solid fundamental, basic and applied research support as well as a strong interaction with industrial and academic partners.
In the Department of Bioscience Engineering at the University of Antwerp, the development of scientific research and education happens in close cooperation with various institutions and universities.
The research can be divided in three major research themes:
- Chemistry and food technology and Environmental technology are based at the research group of "Sustainable Energy, Air and Water Technology" (DuEL)
- Cell and gene biotechnology and Land and forest management are situated in the research group of "Environmental Ecology & Microbiology" (ENdEMIC)"
- (Electro) Chemical Analysis Lab belongs to the group of "Antwerp Electrochemical and Analytical Sciences Lab (A-Sense)"
