MSc in Industrial Biotechnology

To create the next generation of skilled IB practitioners, the IBioIC's collaborative MSc in Industrial Biotechnology was launched in September 2014. Administered and awarded by the University of Strathclyde, this unique course is taught over eight HEIs throughout Scotland with valued input from our industrial partners putting our course at the forefront of developments in science and engineering.

This is an exciting opportunity for science and engineering graduates who are looking for a career in an emerging industry that is sustainable, green and essential to the global economy. The course will provide you with a strong foundation in basic industrial biotechnology. You’ll also cover advanced state-of-the-art topics in a wide range of industrial biotechnology related areas.

Subject to availability, students may also be offered an industrial placement over a period of four months, allowing students to gain a valuable experience in an industrial environment.

The application process for the 2016 collaborative MSc in Industrial Biotechnology is now open. For details on the entry requirements for next year, course content and to apply, go to the University of Strathclyde website.
