Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


The MPhil in Biotechnology brings together world-leading academics and industry champions to deliver an in-depth, multidisciplinary curriculum.

Some of the most important frontiers of biology are at the interface with the physical sciences and technology, and the programme aims to respond to major talent needs in academia and industry by teaching students who have strong analytical skills and wish to apply them in biotechnology and related sectors. It is particularly suited to those with a degree in engineering, physics, chemistry, maths or computer sciences, but it is also open to candidates with other backgrounds wanting to combine numerical and biological reasoning.
