Course content

Industrial biotechnology (known mainly in Europe as “white biotechnology”) is the application of biotechnology for industrial purposes e.g. the use of cells (mammalian and microbial) to perform chemical processing, such as waste recycling, or to produce materials, such as beer and wine, cheese, antibiotics, and (using genetic engineering) hormones, vaccines and enzymes.

This programme aims to provide a high level of scientific knowledge and understanding of these processes with the option to focus on specific areas of interest through module choice.
