Research and development in biotechnology continue to improve processes and develop products that have a profound impact on various sectors, such as healthcare and pharmaceuticals, agriculture, food and feed, environmental remediation, as well as the production of chemicals and biofuels.
The Master’s in Biotechnology is a broad programme from Lund University, covering scientific and technological aspects of biotechnology processes, biocatalysts including enzymes and microorganisms, product recovery and process design. To prepare our students for the final semester Master’s thesis, nearly all of our courses include practical exercises. It is therefore recommended that students who apply to this programme have acquired laboratory skills during their Bachelor's degree.
Due to our close links with local and international industry, the programme is closely aligned to market needs, and there is a clear emphasis on the engineering aspects of biotechnology. During your studies, you will meet not only researchers at the departments but also guest lecturers from biotech companies working with, for example, product development and marketing.
