Что я буду изучать?

Biotechnology involves studies of molecules, cells and organisms with the aim of understanding how biological processes work, and to be able to develop methods for production of biomolecules like vaccines, enzymes, plants and many others. New and advanced methods of analysis make it possible to study biological reactions and systems better than just a few years ago.

The Master of Science programme in Biotechnology is aimed towards scientific research with focus on cell- and molecular biology, biochemistry and microbiology. One of the objectives is to give the students an in-depth understanding of the biological processes in bacteria, plants and animals and possible applications of these processes.

During the course of the study it will be placed emphasis on practical skills in central courses such as cell- and molecular biology, biochemistry and microbiology in addition to research training. The latter includes statement of testable hypotheses, strategies for testing, collecting data, and interpretation of the results. The master study contain a theoretical and methodical dimension that can be translated to other scientific areas.

General conditions

The MSc in Biotechnology is two years of full-time study, where the normal workload for a full-time student for one academic year is 60 credits. It is an International master programme, and all courses are lectured in English.

The Master's programme in Biotechnology consists of two parts:

Mandatory and elective courses (60 credits) - both theoretical and methodological
Master's thesis (60 credits) - a supervised, individual research project

Master's theses topics

At the MSc in Biotechnology, Master's theses are available within a wide range of research areas:

Molecular Biology and Microbiology
Biochemical Engineering
Biopolymer Chemistry and Bionanotechnology
