Program Overview

This course gives you an advanced understanding of molecular biology, computational biology and microbiology alongside teaching you valuable IT skills in data analytics that you can apply to solving real-world problems.

Modern biotechnology is a hugely complex subject, drawing from a range of scientific fields. On this course, you learn the latest new technologies in key areas; gain insights into how they are used in the global biotechnology industry; and discover how microbes can be used on an industrial scale to benefit humankind.

You also hone your research skills with a laboratory-based project in one of five taught areas: molecular biology; computational biology; applied microbiology; analytical biology; and biomaterials.

The data analytics units are designed for non-computing graduates looking to apply IT in their work. They cover a wide range of topics including programming; databases; security; project management; and computer networking.

Why choose this course?

  • Study the latest developments in applied microbiology and computational biology in high-quality, broad-based classes taught by dedicated staff with research experience in specialist subject areas
  • Explore the latest technologies in molecular biology and the industrial processes that are used to exploit microbes for specific products and applications
  • Develop the ability to use information from relevant sources, and independently and critically evaluate current research and advanced scholarship
  • Through the data analytics element of the course, be able to apply IT tools and techniques to theoretical and methodological approaches, developing solutions to complex real-world problems
  • Gain the ability to use assured, accurate and fluent language to present your work, and learn to develop graphs and images that clearly illustrate complex points
  • Benefit from a wide knowledge base and the key transferable skills that will give you the opportunity to take your career to new heights in the biotechnology and allied industries
