The programme will be open to graduates and those currently working in industry with an honours degree (minimum second class honours grade 2) in Science or Engineering. Applicants who do not hold an honours degree but who have significant relevant industrial experience will also be considered, and should contact the Programme Chair to discuss this prior to applying.
Months of entry
The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Bioprocess Engineering is delivered by DCU's School of Biotechnology in conjunction with TCD School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT). It is accredited by DCU.
The M.Sc. is an interactive and dynamic programme that will develop your knowledge and appreciation of the conceptual and factual bases for bioprocess design and operation. It also develops your understanding of bioprocessing, particularly the structures, roles and experimental methods associated with biopharmaceuticals, their analysis, production methods and technology for monitoring and control of bioprocesses.
It provides an advanced and up-to-date academic base in the major disciplines of bioprocess engineering and fosters a range of transferable skills across a full range of relevant subjects.
