This one year, full time masters course provides you with advanced training and an opportunity to discover first-hand modern industry’s need for skilled biomolecular technologists. You will learn to analyse the natural and artificially engineered large bio-molecules of importance to the pharmaceutical, food/nutrition, healthcare, biomedical and other important industries. This will include training in “patent preferred” biochemical, biophysical and molecular biology technologies, including dynamic light scattering, gene cloning and protein engineering.
A key feature of this course is the three-month industrial placement (or, for those that chose instead, an industrially related project) – an exciting opportunity, which will develop your ability to research a subject of industrial or biomedical relevance in depth and give you a full appreciation of what is required by modern industry.
The course, founded in 1997 is well established with a high national and international reputation with over 500 students successfully trained for careers in Industry and Academia.
