Description

Advertisement

This programme connects fundamental research with its applications and integrates genetics, gene technology, cell biology, molecular biology, biotechnology and bioinformatics. All these disciplines have a common basis in molecular genetics, which is the discipline that explains how the information in the genes is expressed and how it can give rise to various traits of an organism. Emphasis is also placed on subjects including genetic mechanisms underlying disease, mapping, and diagnostic methods.

Special features of the programme:

* Courses in genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, biotechnology and medical genetics
* Courses contain practical training in molecular biology techniques
* Includes training in the innovation process, entrepreneurship, and the commercialisation of biotechnology

Career prospects:

The knowledge and skills you will gain on this programme open doors to employment within many sectors in industry, academia, and society, for example in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical industries or within agencies concerned with patent and legal issues, education or research funding. The programme provides you with a solid grounding for PhD studies.
