Master of Biotechnology (Biomedical)(Advanced) New
Lead the way in biomedical technology
Our Master of Biotechnology (Biomedical) (Advanced) shares many similarities with the Master of Biotechnology (Biomedical), but offers an even deeper and more focused research experience.
What will you do?
The two-year full-time Advanced degree shares a common first year with the non-Advanced program, in which you will:
- learn from active researchers in biomedical science
- gain the latest industry insights from lab placements
- take courses in entrepreneurship, innovation and intellectual property management
- hone your skills in all the same internationally renowned research facilities and centres listed in the Master of Biotechnology (Biomedical) description.
In the second year, however, the Advanced degree offers the opportunity to pursue a 24-point research project focused in a specific area, as opposed to the non-Advanced degree’s 12-point, more general project.
Please note that entry into the second-year Advanced stream requires a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 6. If your GPA is below 6, you will be able to continue in the non-Advanced stream.
Where could it take you?
Like the Master of Biotechnology (Biomedical), the Advanced degree will place you at biotechnology’s leading edge, where major advances are influencing important issues such as vaccine development, cancer treatment and stem cell therapies.
With more advanced research and data analysis skills in a specific area, however, you will be in an even stronger position to take on senior and/or leadership roles in that area. You will also be well placed to continue your research in a PhD.
