Masters degrees in Genetic Engineering administer postgraduate training in the methods for selecting and manipulating the DNA of cells within organisms, to genetically modify hereditary traits, or produce biological products.
Related subjects include Applied Genetics, Bioethics and Biotechnology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Biology or Engineering.
Genetic engineering can be employed in a vast range of contexts. Genetically modified products can be used to improve human and animal life from the micro to the macro levels, including the production of medicine, right through to tackling global warming and conservation issues.
Though some content may vary depending on the specific focus you might choose, general training in topics such as genetics and genomics is administered through practical techniques. These include bioinformatics, lab testing, experiment design, case studies, and fieldwork.
A Masters in Genetic Engineering may lead to any number of careers, including: managing the development and manufacture of products for medical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, or other purposes; involvement in conservation projects; consultancy for NGOs and private SMEs; public policy.
