The exploitation of biological systems has had a major commercial impact over the last decade. Biotechnology will continue to grow in the postgenomic era, in areas ranging from drug discovery, to stem cell research and genetic engineering.
As well as explaining the science behind biotechnology, this course also explains how new start-up biotechnology companies are created, how to explore the market potential of products and processes, how to create business plans and how money is raised from venture capitalists.
Our inclusion of group enterprise projects, which involve close collaboration with entrepreneurs, provides a great opportunity for you to stand out from other graduates.
Our courses are designed to produce graduates who will have a solid understanding of science, technology and business management, along with the entrepreneurial skills required to exploit technological advances within a competitive environment.
This blend of skills will be invaluable to future employers and provides a springboard for the budding biotechnology entrepreneurs of the future.
The University runs several open days per year.
We also operate campus tours, which are available most days. These are with a student ambassador who can tell you all about life at The University of Manchester. It may also be possible to meet with admissions staff (subject to staff availability). These tours are open to anybody thinking of applying to us for any of the biological and biomedical sciences. Family and friends are welcome too.
