Biotechnology revolves around the use of living organisms – plant cells, animal cells and microorganisms – and biomolecules from these, for the creation of new products and services. Biotechnology provides solutions for a future bioeconomy based on sustainability with respect to food production, health, and the environment.
In our master's degree programme, you can choose between two specialisations:
- Experimental biotechnology
- Commercialisation of biotechnology
Students in both specialisations take coursework covering our main experimental fields of interest, as well as commercialisation of biotechnology. Thus, students graduating from our programme possess a cross-disciplinary approach to addressing biotechnological problems.
Students with specialisation in experimental biotechnology will have focuses on the following:
- Cell- and reproduction biotechnology
- Molecular and functional genetics/genomics
- Bioinformatics and Biodiscovery
Commercialisation of biotechnology
The specialisation in commercialisation of biotechnologyfocuses on taking biotechnological ideas and inventions from the laboratory to the market, with emphasis on various factors that facilitate and regulate this process. This includes topics as economy and business models, commercialisation, innovation, intellectual property and legislation.
