Course content

This exciting interdisciplinary MSc programme focuses on providing advanced academic training in the cellular and molecular processes that relate to the production of biomedicines for use in healthcare.

This is coupled with rigorous practical training in the design, production and characterisation of biomolecules using state-of-theart biotechnological and bioengineering analytical and molecular technologies.

You acquire practical, academic and applied skills in data analysis, systems and modelling approaches, and bioinformatics, together with transferable skills in scientific writing, presentation and public affairs. On successful completion of the programme, you will be able to integrate these skills to develop novel solutions to modern biotechnological issues from both academic and industrial perspectives.
