The MSc in Biotechnology combines two of these disciplines, focusing on biology and chemistry along with principles of design and engineering.

The field of biotechnology uses living organisms to generate controlled processes or even final products. Students pursuing this degree learn about a wide range of topics. On the biological side, focuses may include genetics, microbiology, cellular biology, and biochemistry. On the design and engineering side, students may learn about subjects such as process design and genetic engineering. Some programs also allow students to focus on a subdiscipline, such as the role of bioengineering and bioscience in healthcare or food production.

This degree program prepares students for biotechnology careers by encompassing a broad range of subjects that many degree programs do not. Besides providing students with necessary knowledge, the degree coursework fosters problem solving and critical thinking skills that prepare students to take on various design and engineering challenges. Additionally, earning the degree can improve likelihood of employment as science and engineering employers often prefer candidates with graduate degrees.

The cost of a master’s degree program can vary significantly, depending on the educational institution, region, and country. Anyone who is considering pursuing a Master of Science should compare various options to find a program that is financially reasonable.

Someone who has earned the MSc in Biotechnology can work in research or development in a variety of bioengineering fields. These include pharmaceutical or medical design, genetic engineering, biofuel production, and industrial biotechnology systems. Potential employers include universities, research institutions, and private companies.

Several sectors throughout our country and abroad offer them a wide variety of job opportunities where they can work in flexible job profiles.
