The Master of Biotechnology program is designed for scientists who want to update their technical skills in core areas such as molecular biology, protein technology or bioinformatics, or acquire research laboratory experience. The program also suits legal or business professionals with some scientific background who want to learn about the latest technological developments.
For your 1.5 years of full-time studies, you'll select from more than 30 courses, allowing you to tailor your studies to suit your interests and career goals.
Specialise in Agricultural Biotechnology to discover how to meet environmental and food security challenges with gene editing, genomics, proteomics, recombinant DNA technology, bioinformatics and disease diagnostics. Alternatively, you can choose electives in molecular genetics, food microbiology, entrepreneurship and strategy, intellectual property, drug discovery and development, immunology and infectious diseases, and more.
You'll also have the opportunity to put your learning into practice through internships, placements and international study options that focus on research and development, commercialisation, marketing and the business of science.
With more than 400 biotechnology companies and some 600 medical device companies in Australia alone, graduates are in high demand for roles in health, agriculture, diagnostics, the environment, forestry, law and commerce.
