Overview.

This is an intensive 11-month full-time programme that combines taught and research components to provide students with state-of-the-art education at the interface of biology with physical sciences and technology. The programme draws on the world-class research and teaching expertise in biotechnology at the University of Cambridge, and it has been designed to respond to major employers' needs and the skills gap in the biotech and pharma sectors. It is based at the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, but tightly coupled to other departments within the University, which contribute to teaching and host research projects in the respective areas of expertise in a truly multidisciplinary configuration. The programme also benefits from input from a range of industry champions. Students are given plenty of opportunities to interact with industry experts in order to understand the biotech industry landscape and boost their professional networks.

The programme is aimed at those who want to gain fundamental and advanced understanding of biotechnology as well as the necessary skillset and business acumen to become future leaders in biotechnology either in academic or commercial settings.

Course content.

The programme has been designed to provide all-round training covering four key areas: core and advanced knowledge, practical skills, research skills, and business-relevant competences. We equip our students with basic and advanced theoretical knowledge in biotechnology, focussing on core areas as well as giving them the opportunity to immerge in one of the world's leading research universities and learn about the latest advances in the field. In addition to theoretical knowledge, we ensure that our students acquire the necessary practical skills in biotechnology both for wet-laboratory and computer-based work. Throughout the programme, significant emphasis is put on the development of research skills, including critical thinking, documenting and reporting, academic writing and communication, and research management. The fast-paced, demanding and competitive environment in which biotechnology research and commercialisation takes place calls for business-savvy scientists, be it in academia or industry. Our programme offers a range of opportunities for students to acquire business-relevant knowledge and skills.

Careers.

Our students are prepared to pursue a career in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, agritech, or bioenergy industries, or in other sectors where bioprocesses are important. The programme may also be a stepping stone to PhD level studies. The programme’s structure and content are flexible so that the students can tailor their studies to their interests and career goals.

Our students have access to the University’s exceptional Careers Service. It provides general career planning advice, organises recruitment events that attract major global companies and high-profile employers, and offers one-to-one sessions with its careers advisers. The programme's staff and industry champions are also available to provide advice in their area of specialisation. University-wide events (e.g. extra-curricular entrepreneurship activities) and the fact that Cambridge is home to one of the most important biotech clusters in Europe create great networking and career development opportunities.

The University of Cambridge is well known by the talent pool it generates, and its graduates are amongst the world’s most sought-after by employers.
