About the programme
Biotechnology revolves around the use of living organisms – plant cells, animal cells and microorganisms – and biomolecules from these, for the creation of new products and services. Biotechnology provides solutions for a future bioeconomy based on sustainability with respect to food production, health, and the environment.
In our master's degree programme, you can choose between two specialisations:
- Experimental biotechnology
- Commercialisation of biotechnology
Students in both specialisations take coursework covering our main experimental fields of interest, as well as commercialisation of biotechnology. Thus, students graduating from our programme possess a cross-disciplinary approach to addressing biotechnological problems.

For both specialisation modules of the programme, your degree from higher education must fulfil the following requirements:
- The equivalent of at least 80 ECTS credits in natural sciences and mathematics, with a solid foundation in chemistry and biology. Coursework in biochemistry must be included, with a minimum grade of C.
- A minimum average grade of D for the 80 ECTS credits.
For students taking the Experimental Biotechnology specialisation, and who want to perform Master’s thesis work in molecular biology, the degree from higher education must in addition include coursework in molecular biology with a minimum grade of C. Students lacking molecular biology coursework may qualify for molecular biology thesis work by taking a Bachelor-level molecular biology course at INN University.
