In the 15th of September the Workshop for the Doctoral Programme In Animal Science 2022 was sucessfully held at ICB...
The Doctoral Programme in Animal Science is accredited by the Portuguese Agency for Assessment and Accreditation of Higher Education (A3ES) and aims to promote advanced training in the field of Animal Science through research. This programme is designed to achieve levels of excellence, with the supervision of scientists associated with exceptionally strong R&D institutions of international excellence in the different specialities of Animal Science.
The Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar (ICBAS) is a Faculty of the University of Porto recognized for its multidisciplinary characteristics within the Life Sciences, which is reflected in its innovative educational, scientific and cultural project, that presides over the formation of the institution. Being the only Portuguese School which offers courses in Medicine and Veterinary Medicine in parallel with Biochemistry, Bioengineering and Aquatic Sciences, ICBAS is particularly well placed to effectively contribute to the new challenges of Animal Science: the sustainable production of safe animal food products, using innovative production techniques able to improve feed efficiency, health and welfare of animals, whilst minimizing the environmental impact.
ICBAS’ Doctoral Programme in Animal Science is part of the national training network in the field of Animal Biology and Production Systems, providing the opportunity to catapult applications and developments in areas such as Veterinary Medicine, Bioengineering, Biology, Pharmacy, Chemistry and Biochemistry, into the Animal Science. It also provides a natural platform for advanced training of undergraduate and Master students holding degrees in Veterinary Medicine, Zootechnical Engineering, Agronomic Engineering, Biology, Marine and Environmental Sciences, Biochemistry, Bioengineering and Chemistry, among others. These broad range of acquired experience will allow creating a productive atmosphere in an excellent work environment, encouraging students to obtain a high quality scientific international training. The Animal Science Doctoral programme with well established collaborations with major stakeholders assures cutting edge scientific training in core research skills as well as in transferable personal and professional skills and competences.
The Doctoral Programme is composed of a 1st period consisting of an annual course, called “Probationary Year” without fixed semester courses. This model allows the student to perform a custom initial training through courses, classes and / or workshops that can be completed on the same semester or over the two semesters, up to a maximum of the correspondent effort of 30 credits. The remaining work corresponding to the effort of 30 credits from the 1st year necessarily includes preparatory work (laboratory or other type of research) to support the work leading to doctoral thesis. The three following years (180 credits) are devoted to the preparation of an original thesis in one of the specialities of knowledge provided in the field of Animal Science.
