The Master of Biotechnology program is an accelerated one-year program with a 30-unit graduation requirement. Beginning in early July, all students take intensive core lab courses followed by complementary courses that will introduce students to the field of biotechnology, expand their knowledge of key biological concepts, and provide opportunities for students professional development. The final semester will be largely devoted to students' internships, culminating in a capstone project report and presentation.
As part of the MCB department, the Master of Biotechnology program is connected to the department's world-renowned faculty, who lead labs performing cutting-edge research covering a wide range of modern fields.
