The aim is to educate candidates in biotechnological skills in general, thus qualifying them for careers in a range of organisations including those whose focus is on innovation, commercial development and value creation of marine resourses in prosesses and industry.

We are preoccupied with exploiting the advantage we enjoy as a nation in the form of access to enormous marine resources. Most of the organisms that comprise the marine biodiversity are still little researched. These bio-resources can be the source of unique biomolecules (enzymes, secondary metabolites, proteins/peptides, marine fats and carbohydrates) and associated genetic information.

Good relationships with the biotechnological industry are exploited to adapt the teaching, and ensure that it is relevant for commercial development and innovation. Many newly established businesses in the region have their origins in the biotechnological community in Tromsø and the sector is expanding. The programme will give you much sought-after expertise.

Objectives, content and organization
The purpose is to educate candidates in modern biotechnological expertise, with particular empasis on use of marine resources, bioactive compounds, gene products and marine rest raw materials. You will qualify for careers in fields such as marine value creation, innovation and research.

A good marine biotechnologist must have a broad base of knowledge and skills in basic molecular biology, chemistry and techniques and processes that use marine micro-organisms, plant and animal cells, or parts of these, to manufacture, develop or modify commercially useful products. On successful completion of the programme, the degree of MSc in Marine Biotechnology is awarded.

In preparation for your study we encourage you to do the following:

iKomp – information literacy: The course is an online course that aims to make you better equipped to deal with the demands and expectations you are met with at universities and colleges when it comes to learning and academic integrity.

There will be a mandatory introductory part with themes like:

  • How to do science
  • How to be a master student in biotechnology
  • Writing a master theses/what we excpect from a master’s thesis
  • Plagiarism / iKomp
  • Searching for literature / Munin
  • EndNote/Using references databases and how to use them in Word
  • Preparation for laboratory work
  • Web page for Master students at NCFS

The first semester consists of compulsory courses. See the menu “Programme structure” for course details.

In the second semester the student has various subject choices. Alternatively, this semester may be used for an exchange visit.

The master’s thesis (60 credits/ECTS) is written during the third and fourth semesters and is based on supervised experimental work. it is also possible to start the Master’s thesis in the second semester (10 Credits and combine it with one elective course (10 Credits) in the third semester.

HMS-0500, the compulsory safety course for laboratory work, must be taken by all students who carry out lab work. The compulsory parts of this multi-module course are taken online. The first aid part requires physical attendance. Students must fulfill the compulsory online modules as soon as the semester starts to have access to the laboratory wings. There are no credits for this course. Registration for HMS-0500 web-modules.

Admission to the MSc in Marine Biotechnology requires a bachelor’s degree in biotechnology, marine biotechnology or equivalent education. An average grade of equivalent to C or better in the Norwegian grading system is required.

Required background in biotechnology:

  • In-depth specialisation at the 2000 level (2nd-3rd year) in the following subjects;
    chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, methods in molecular biology and biotechnology (min. 10 credits in each subject).
  • The in-depth specialisation must amount to 80 credits in total.
  • Lack of in-depth specialisation in one of these 2000 topics can be compensated by a strong background in one or more of the other topics.
