The Master of Biotechnology is a master’s degree in biotechnology. Programs prepare students to engage in research, lead lab teams, make development and planning decisions, create and apply research modalities to large projects, and take the reins of management and marketing decisions.
Curricula include advanced studies into topics such as microbiology, cell biology, genomics, biochemistry, and molecular biology, and many programs offer specializations in fields such as drug discovery, regenerative and stem cell technologies, and bioinformatics. Both thesis and non-thesis programs are available, thesis programs generally having more rigorous research requirements.
Schools offer one-year programs with tuition starting at $20,000 USD per academic year, although partial merit scholarships are available for high performing international students based on IELTS (6.5+) and TOEFL (90+) exam scores as well as CGPA and GRE (300+) or GMAT (550+) exam scores.
Many programs incorporate training and practical experience, in the form of research projects, presentations, lab work, and OPT and CPT opportunities.
