Biotechnology combines biology, chemistry, medicine, and engineering sciences for the discovery, development and production of an enormous variety of well-known or novel products ranging from fuels and foods over complex proteins to specialised pharmaceuticals and whole organisms with novel abilities.
Classical plant and animal productions are nowadays relying on modern biotechnology. The same is true for the treatment of our waste water and other waste streams that in some cases can be converted into energy or valuable products by the action of specialised enzymes or microorganisms. Biotechnology is bound to have a very strong influence on our future lives and development.
At the Master programme in Biotechnology, you will work with biological molecules, gene technologies, and microbial and cell cultures. In the courses, you will learn about cell biology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, protein chemistry and more.
Every semester you will also carry out an experimental research project where you will make use of the methods and the knowledge taught in the courses, and where you have time to acquire in-depth understanding of specific subjects of your own interest.
Projects can for instance be carried out in the following areas:
Cultivation of micro-organisms or human cells for production of natural or gene-modified products
Analysis and characterisation of proteins and their functions by advanced methods
Gene expression analysis and modification of genes and their activities
Environmental biotechnology and microbiology
Whether you are interested in foods, industrial enzymes, medicine genes, proteins, or cells, the Master programme in Biotechnology at Aalborg University will satisfy your expectations!
This 4-semester programme is carried out at the Section of Biotechnology, Aalborg University. The programme aims at providing international students with solid knowledge, expertise and hands-on experience in modern biotechnology.
Job and career · Biotechnology
Completion of the International Programme in Biotechnology will qualify participants for jobs in research, development, management and production in biotechnological and medical industries, in the food industry, and in teaching and education.
Successful candidates will also be qualified to apply for further PhD studies.
