Master of Biotechnology (MBiotech)

Develop your career, gain specialist knowledge and skills, and connect with government and industry partners in our new 180-point Master of Biotechnology.

Programme overview

With our MBiotech you can explore possibilities, gain insight, and address emerging global challenges for human and environmental health and wellbeing.

You’ll have the option to focus your study on a specific area like genomics, proteomics, microbial biotechnology or bioinformatics or take a mix of  courses that cover all these topics. You’ll also develop skills that equip you for employment in the biotechnology sector or further study. 

Enter the MBiotech with a recognised undergraduate degree in biotechnology or biological science and prior exposure to molecular biosciences, biochemistry, microbiology and genetics.
