About the course
This cutting-edge course provides hands-on experience and knowledge of the latest techniques in biotechnology and bioinformatics research. Industry connectedness is an integral part of this course and ensures students have opportunities to gain an industry perspective and establish professional networks prior to graduation. Strong industry links ensure that guest lectures from key industry partners are embedded into the curriculum to provide students with an understanding of industry-engaged research and commercialisation in the biotechnology environment. Students also have the opportunity to participate in site visits and have the opportunity to undertake a Research Project in a Biotechnology or Bioinformatics related field. Throughout the Master of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics students will also gain experience operating cutting edge analytical equipment (e.g. cell-culture bioreactors similar to those in industrial-scale production facilities) and cover a wide range of emerging topics in biotechnology and, importantly, research management and business skills. Following successful completion of the course, graduates may choose to pursue further research through a PhD, or seek employment in industry or government roles. Alternatively, students may choose to exit early with a Graduate Certificate of Research Management or Graduate Diploma of Biotechnology and Bioinformatics.
