The MSc in Industrial Biotechnology will provide students with in-depth training in life sciences and technologies through delivery of a focussed teaching experience that includes a placement with industry-relevant training. 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.

A second class Honours degree (2:2 or above) or equivalent qualification in a biological science degree is required for entry onto this programme.

The teaching on this programme is lecture based with self-directed learning, practical classes and tutorials to support the lecture material. Many lectures are recorded and can be viewed again when required. The MSc makes the most of hands-on learning to enable repeated exposure to evidence-based practice using real life examples.
