Biotechnology at MCI Management Center Innsbruck

The Biotechnology Master’s degree program at MCI is designed for motivated bio-scientists who seek to apply their knowledge in the development of new products. Assuming basic training in a relevant discipline, such as biotechnology or biology, the program provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to understand, revise, and optimize biotechnological processes, from the genetic foundations to the final product. Graduates of this Master’s degree program operate at the interface of engineering and science.

 

Biotechnology applies the principles and structures of nature to create new technological processes and products. With its enormous potential for growth and professional development, biotechnology is considered a key discipline of the 21st century. On the one hand, this is due to the advancement of biomedical research and, on the other hand, this is owed to the chemical industry, which gives rise to an increased need for more sustainable and efficient processes.

Biotechnology at MCI Management Center Innsbruck: Career

In biotechnology, principles and structures to be found in the natural world are applied to technical processes and products. Graduates of the Master’s program in Biotechnology work at the interface of natural science and engineering. They make use of the methods of biochemistry, molecular biology and genetic engineering on the one hand and engineering science on the other. They have the competence to employ cell culture techniques,
operate bioreactors and develop biotechnology processes, to transfer procedures tested in the laboratory to fullscale engineering operations and to take general responsibility for the smooth running of production processes. In addition, they may be called upon to design and supervise bioprocess engineering facilities.

 

The Biotechnology Master’s program produces engineers with an ability to use their broad knowledge of bioscience and process engineering in an integrative way to design biotechnological processes from the genetic basis to the final product. They are qualified to work in biotechnological plant manufacturing and respective process development companies. They are familiar with the basics of bioscience, allowing them to specialize in biomedical topics.

 

Thanks to the breadth of their interdisciplinary training, graduates have a large variety of career options, with a focus on the following fields:
 

  • Biomedical research and development
