Master in Medical Biotechnology

KTH Royal Institute of Technology

Master in Medical Biotechnology

The Master’s programme in Medical Biotechnology aims to provide a detailed understanding of the cutting-edge techniques used in molecular biology, with an emphasis on medical applications. The student will be provided with a comprehensive education where technology, biology and chemistry are combined, preparing them for careers in Sweden or internationally.


Programme outline

This two-year Master’s programme consists of courses based around a core of mandatory studies in biotechnology. Courses are then supplemented with those that are elective in, for instance, chemistry or other technological subjects. This cross-platform approach to education provides the student with a unique, individualised profile to their degree.


Degree project

The degree project is performed during the last semester of the programme, where the student works on a research topic related to the theoretical courses in the curriculum. The project may be carried out either in a research setting at KTH, in industry in Sweden or abroad, or in another university or research institute anywhere in the world.


Career prospects

The combination of technology, biology and chemistry taught in the Medical Biotechnology programme provides an attractive profile for a professional career in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industry, or for further academic studies. These areas are expanding worldwide, which gives a graduate in Medical Biotechnology opportunities for a career in companies involved in the manufacturing of drugs, medical analyses and diagnostics, or further work in academic research, patent agencies, or as consultant.
