Course summary

Bridging the gap between biology, technology and business management, our programme is taught in collaboration with the Adam Smith Business School. The aim of this programme is help you gain sound understanding of the nature of business based on bioscience knowledge, research and industry and how all are applied to solve real world problems.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Accredited by the Royal Society of Biology for the purpose of meeting, in part, the academic and experience requirement for the Membership and Chartered Biologist (CBiol).
  • Improve your knowledge of modern molecular, biochemical, cell biological and genetic techniques for biotechnological applications.
  • Study business management based on bioscience knowledge and research, opportunities for innovation and regulatory requirement constraints, intellectual property and ethical issues.
  • Learn to assess the current literature, be encouraged to form opinions based on scientific merit, and implement these ideas in future research planning.
  • Be taught by experts in the field of biotechnology who run active, internationally recognised, research groups here at Glasgow.
  • Be part of extensive interaction with industry, through site visits, guest lectures and an 'Industrial Networking Symposium' where representatives from the European biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry will discuss their companies and answer your questions on working in the industrial sector.
  • Receive hands on experience of diverse biotechnological research skills with a strong laboratory component making up the programme throughout the year.
  • Gain valuable training through our flexible, independent, research project for students wishing to proceed to a PhD or into an industrial career. This may also be completed as a business-based project.
