The recently-established Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC) has launched this unique collaborative Masters in Industrial Biotechnology (IB). IBioIC has committed to creating the next generation of IB-skilled practitioners and the Masters programme is pivotal to delivering this aim.
The course will equip graduates with key skills which will enable them to pursue a research-based career in industry and which may serve as a means of progression towards a PhD.
The degree is being operated in conjunction with 13 HEI's in Scotland and the Centre’s industry partners. It will be hosted by the University of Strathclyde.
Who might be interested? The course provides 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.
It is expected to appeal to applicants with a background in biology, biotechnology, chemistry, chemical engineering, molecular biology, synthetic biology or with related science or engineering qualifications.
The course is also likely to appeal to candidates with a primarily industrial background as a further training opportunity and as a means of becoming involved in this critically important field.
There are 30 fully funded places available (Home/EU students) and these will be judged on a case- by-case basis; please contact the Centre for details. Please note that the funding covers tuition fees only.
