Programs overview


Animal husbandry management and aquaculture

Places: 15 state-funded places/ 10 tuition fee places

This master’s degree is suitable primarily to graduates of Animal Sciences, Fisheries and Aquaculture but also to graduates of other fields who are aiming for an improvement in these fields.

The master’s degree studies complement the notions obtained in the bachelor program by deepening the knowledge regarding the optimized procedures of feed processing and animal nutrition, breeding strategies in animal husbandry and aquaculture, reproductive biotechnologies, management of milk and meat production in cattle, sheep and goats, pig meat production systems, management in poultry farms.


Quality management of animal products

Places: 15 state-funded places/ 10 tuition fee places

This master’s degree is suitable primarily to graduates of Animal Science but also to those from Biotechnology for the food industry and to graduates of other specializations aiming for self development in the field of quality management of animal products.

Among the areas to be studied are: food quality management, traceability of animal production, traceability of bee production, agri-food marketing, modern techniques for determining xenobiotics in animal products, etc.


Management of aquaculture resources

Places: 10 state-funded places/ 10 tuition fee places

The MRA master’s university study program will ensure preparation at level 7 of the EQF, for students who have graduated from the undergraduate cycle of the Fisheries and Aquaculture program, but also undergraduate programs in related fields, such as Animal Husbandry, Biotechnologies, Veterinary Medicine, Management, etc. Students will acquire skills in the field of drawing up management plans for natural aquatic environments and wetlands, as well as from systematic fish farms. These are necessary in various fields, such as the management of natural protected areas, the preparation of files for the management or custody of natural water segments by associations and NGOs in the field of sport/recreational fishing, the approval of investments such as hydropower plants, the development and regularization watercourses, civil constructions or tourist facilities, the design and management of fish farms.

The mission of the Master’s program “Management of Aquaculture Resources” is to train specialists to solve complex problems regarding the acquisition, growth, exploitation and rational exploitation of aquatic bioresources, both from national waters: natural or fisheries, but also international, to offer in an interactive, interdisciplinary and innovative manner, a rich base of theoretical and procedural knowledge about what the profession of manager in the fisheries field means according to current, social and global needs, but also from the perspective of the history and evolution of this field, through reporting to the laws and procedures in force at national, European and global level.


Applied biotechnologies 

Places: 15 state-funded places/ 10 tuition fee places

This master’s program is designed primarily for graduates of biotechnologies (agricultural biotechnologies, food industry biotechnologies, veterinary medical biotechnologies, environmental biotechnologies, industrial biotechnologies or pharmaceutical biotechnologies). However, all graduates with a passion for life sciences, who wish to expand their knowledge in the field of applied biotechnologies, are welcome.

Curriculum disciplines aim at multi-omics applications in biotechnologies, such as: genomics, microbial biotechnologies, bioinformatics, fermentation product biotechnology, biodynamics of natural pigments, isolation of metabolites from natural matrices, biomaterials – practical applications, marker-assisted selection, embryo-associated biotechnologies, molecular biotechnologies. techniques for food authentication and GMO detection, nutritional genomics, etc.
