Overview

The Master of Science in Biotechnology at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is aimed towards scientific research with focus on:

  • cell- and molecular biology
  • biochemistry
  • microbiology

One of the objectives is to give the students an in-depth understanding of the biological processes in bacteria, plants and animals and possible applications of these processes.

During the course of the study it will be placed emphasis on practical skills in central courses such as cell- and molecular biology, biochemistry and microbiology in addition to research training. The latter includes statement of testable hypotheses, strategies for testing, collecting data, and interpretation of the results. The master study contain a theoretical and methodical dimension that can be translated to other scientific areas.
