Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


The MPhil in Biotechnology puts together a group of highly capable and motivated students from a range of academic and career backgrounds. Many have the strong desire to merge their expertise in engineering, physics, chemistry, maths or computer sciences with biotechnology. Others have research and/or employment experience in the bioscience sector. They all are committed to become highly regarded players in biotechnology research and industry.

We aim to enrol 15 to 20 students each year. This is a newly developed programme at the University of Cambridge, and we will be welcoming our very first cohort in October 2018.
