Description

Bridging the gap between biology, technology and business management, our programme is taught in collaboration with the Adam Smith Business School. The aim of this programme is help you gain sound understanding of the nature of business based on bioscience knowledge, research and industry and how all are applied to solve real world problems.WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Top 20 in the UK for Biological Sciences (Complete University Guide 2021).
  • Improve your knowledge of modern molecular, biochemical, cell biological and genetic techniques for biotechnological applications.
  • Study business management based on bioscience knowledge and research, opportunities for innovation and regulatory requirement constraints, intellectual property and ethical issues.
  • Learn to assess the current literature, be encouraged to form opinions based on scientific merit, and implement these ideas in future research planning.
  • Be taught by experts in the field of biotechnology who run active, internationally recognised, research groups here at Glasgow.
  • Be part of extensive interaction with industry, through site visits, guest lectures and an 'Industrial Networking Symposium' where representatives from the European biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry will discuss their companies and answer your questions on working in the industrial sector.
  • Receive hands on experience of diverse biotechnological research skills with a strong laboratory component making up the programme throughout the year.
  • Gain valuable training through our flexible, independent, research project for students wishing to proceed to a PhD or into an industrial career. This may also be completed as a business-based project.
  • Additional programme components include industrial networking sessions and a dedicated career workshop on progression planning.
PROGRAMME STRUCTUREThere are two semesters of taught material and a summer session working on a project or dissertation.Semester 1 You will be based in the Adam Smith Business School, developing knowledge and skills in management principles and techniques. We offer an applied approach, with an emphasis on an informed critical evaluation of information, and the subsequent application of concepts and tools to the core areas of business and management.Core Courses:CONTEMPORARY ISSUES IN HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (BIOTECHONOLOGY)MANGING CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION (BIOTECHNOLOGY)MANAGING STRATEGIC CHANGE (BIOTECHNOLOGY)MARKETING MANAGEMENT (BIOTECHONOLGY)OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT (BIOTECHNOLOGY)PROJECT MANAGEMENT (BIOTECHNOLOGY)Semester 2You will study biotechnology courses, which aim to enhance your understanding of using biological processes, organisms, or systems to manufacture products intended to improve the quality of human life. These courses will provide training in state-of-the-art biotechnology applications what have resulted in ground-breaking developments in the areas of medicine, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and food production, environmental clean-up and protection and industrial processes.Core Courses:BIOTECHNOLOGY APPLICATIONSSYNTHETIC BIOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONSOptional Courses:OMIC ANALYSES FOR THE BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES: FROM GENOMICS TO METABOLOMICBIO-IMAGING FOR RESEARCH SCIENTISTSPLANT BIOTECHNOLOGYTECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND COMMERCIALISATION OF BIOSCIENCE RESEARCHProject or Dissertation:If you are studying for an MSc you will undertake an individual project in the summer period (May–August):BIOTECHNOLOGY PROJECTDISSERTATION PROJECTThis will give you an opportunity to apply and consolidate the course material and enhance your ability to do independent work, as well as present results in the most appropriate format.

About this university

International students

Students travel from around the world to study at the university and its website has country-specific information available. The International Student Support Team is a dedicated advisory service to help students on a range of subjects including immigration, finding employment and dealing with financial matters. For those to whom English isn’t a first language there is also English language courses available through the University Language Centre who also provide language support during the length of study. Student life is organised differently at Glasgow than many universities meaning there isn’t a single student association but rather a number covering different areas. There are two separate student’s unions, dating from the times when one was for male students and the other for female, called the Glasgow University Union (GUU) and the Queen Margaret Union (QMU). There is also a Students Representative Council that is the legal body representing students’ interests in the university and in wider terms. The two unions organise a number of social and cultural groups and events including providing facilities for debating, dining, socialising and meeting rooms. Sports are handled by the Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA) that operates both sports clubs as well as fitness classes and drop in sessions.
