What will you study in this Masters?

The Master of Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary study, as it combines content and techniques of biology, biochemistry and biomedicine. Biotechnology deals with the biological and biochemical processes by which new compounds are produced. Among the most famous examples of biotechnology is the production of beer and wine by adding certain yeast enzymes, or the study of DNA.

The full-time one-year course in Biotechnology aims to teach graduates the relevant skills to pursue careers in biotechnology. This course encompasses molecular cell biology, biochemistry and synthetic biology. After completion of these both taught and research-based Masters, you will focus on a specialised dissertation, which is consistent with your career aspirations.
