Medical Biotechnology at KTH
This two-year master’s programme comprises advanced courses regarding biotechnology tools used to analyse a variety of biological samples for life science research, as well as for health care applications within diagnostics and drug development. The student will be provided with in-depth knowledge about scientific methodologies used for comprehensive analyses of biological systems, and their applications for advanced health care or medical surveillance. The programme offers extensive biotechnology training to tackle global needs in the area of life sciences thus enabling students to prepare for careers in Sweden and internationally.
The program syllabus offers two tracks: medical applications of biotechnology and omics, each corresponding to half time studies. The student shall complete all courses within the chosen track. In addition, the student will tailor their education by combing their choice with a second track either of this programme, or any of the three tracks at the master’s programme in Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology. It is also possible to cherry pick courses from any track to create one’s own unique professional profile.
The tracks are designed to provide a holistic perspective on the use of biotechnology. Courses comprise both theoretical knowledge and practical application of theory from experimental design to bioinformatic and statistical analysis of raw data and interpretation of results. The curriculum provides a cross-platform approach to enable students to acquire a unique and individualised expertise that appeal to a wide span of employers. Students train problem-solving skills, project management as well as professional communication. The programme curriculum is designed, taught and continuously updated by a team of internationally recognised researchers within the different subject areas.
