Course content

The focus of the MSc Industrial Biotechnology programme is to provide you with specific training to address the skills gap identified by the Biopharma/Life sciences industry. As part of the programme you will undertake an industrial placement rather than the more traditional research project. The placement will have direct relevance to industry needs and you will have access to a wide range of opportunities either within the university or with external spin-out companies, local SMEs or Medical laboratories.

You will choose from a range of courses including advanced courses in biotechnology, bioinformatics and bio-business, alongside statistics, microbiology and microbial biochemistry. Upon graduation you will be equipped with the key skills and knowledge to pursue a career in biopharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors and to meet the growing demands of those industries for good quality, highly skilled graduates and contribute to the UK knowledge-based economy.
