About this program
Master of Biotechnology
The Biotechnology Master’s degree program at MCI is designed for motivated bio-scientists who seek to apply their knowledge in the development of new products. Assuming basic training in a relevant discipline, such as biotechnology or biology, the program provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to understand, revise, and optimize biotechnological processes, from the genetic foundations to the final product. Graduates of this Master’s degree program operate at the interface of engineering and science.
Biotechnology applies the principles and structures of nature to create new technological processes and products. With its enormous potential for growth and professional development, biotechnology is considered a key discipline of the 21st century. On the one hand, this is due to the advancement of biomedical research and, on the other hand, this is owed to the chemical industry, which gives rise to an increased need for more sustainable and efficient processes.
The requirements for admission to the Master’s degree program in Biotechnology include a relevant Bachelor’s degree or an equivalent post-secondary education.
The Master’s degree program is designed as a follow-up to the Bachelor’s degree program in Biotechnology & Food Engineering or related studies at the Bachelor’s level. Graduates of programs with a curriculum including a minimum number of relevant classes may also be admitted. This applies, in particular, to graduates of biology, pharmacy, and biochemistry courses. The relevance of courses is assessed by the respective head of department and studies, who also decides whether a degree can be recognized.
