1 Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry 1(3) Master's Degree Programme in Biotechnology (MBIOT) General information The supplies the students with the expertise and skills they need for modern biotechnology research and related employment. Topics in instruction range from the latest developments in recombinant DNA technology to non-technical issues, such as business and bioethics. MBIOT is organised by the Faculty Agriculture and Forestry and the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences in close co-operation with the Institute of Biotechnology. The state-of the- art scientific research conducted at these units offer exceptional opportunities to pursue studies in an inspiring research-oriented environment while benefiting from modern facilities. At the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry, the Department of Agricultural Sciences, the Department of Food and Environmental Sciences and the Department of Forest Sciences are the responsible units for MBIOT education. Studies in MBIOT At the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry, students in MBIOT will specialise in one of the four Biotechnology major subject specialist options (responsible Departments in parentheses): 1) Animal Biotechnology (Dept. of Agricultural Sciences) 2) Food Biotechnology (Dept. of Food and Environmental Sciences) 3) Microbial and Environmental Biotechnology (Dept. of Food and Environmental Sciences) 4) Plant Biotechnology (Dept. of Agricultural Sciences) and Forest Biotechnology (Dept. of Forest Sciences) MBIOT studies at the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry include advanced seminars and practical courses in biotechnology, courses in economics and ethics, and a final examination. A central part of advanced studies is the Master s thesis, which alone is worth 40 credits. Students selected for MBIOT may be required to complete their education in biotechnology with some supplementary studies. The estimated duration of studies is two to three years. Admission to the Programme Potential MBIOT candidates apply to either the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry or the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences. The application deadline is at the end of January annually. Careers Graduating with a Master's Degree from MBIOT offers many opportunities for a wide variety of careers both within and outside research and science. Job prospects for M.Sc. students graduating in the various fields of biotechnology are expected to be good. Academic research communities at universities and research institutes will require versatile young PhD students and post-doctoral scientists to conduct basic and applied research based on the newest methods in biotechnology and gene technology. Industry will require modern biotechnologists for the manufacture of new biological products such as pharmaceuticals (e.g. therapeutic proteins) and speciality chemicals in entirely new hosts. Food and beverage manufacturing is increasingly based on biotechnological methods, and environmental awareness is expanding the role and importance of environmental biotechnologists.
