The Master of Biotechnology focuses on the study of living systems to address challenges in the environment, health or food science. Students will explore gene and protein technologies, bioinformatics, and various microbiology and food science disciplines, both in the classroom and via a strong component of hands-on laboratory practicals.
This program includes an option to complete one semester of either work experience in the form of an industry placement, or a research project where you'll complete minor thesis.
All students have the opportunity to analyse real-world data when they undertake a bioinformatics research project.
Apply your knowledge of living systems to address challenges in the environment, health (infectious disease) or food science.
As a graduate of this course, you'll be eligible to apply for roles in advanced areas of the biotechnology industry. You'll be equipped with skills in gene and protein technologies, bioinformatics, and in various microbiology and food science disciplines. These skills are in high demand within the diverse biotechnology sector.
