Our four-semester, English-language Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology master degree programme is designed to provide you with extensive medical biotechnology knowledge and expertise in biotech product development and manufacturing.

An interdisciplinary approach is the key to success in biotechnology. To this end, you build on your knowledge of natural sciences, medical and engineering aspects. You also enhance your understanding of quality assurance frameworks, as well as learning how to combine knowledge from all of these disciplines.

The curriculum also features current trends and the latest developments: for instance, you use cutting-edge technologies, such as shotgun proteomics, to carry out a computerised bioinformatic analysis of all of a cell’s proteins under normal and pathological conditions.

Lecturers from European universities, international speakers from the pharmaceutical industry and plenty of lab work ensure that the programme has a strong practical focus and is aligned with the requirements of industry. When you graduate, you can choose from a wide range of career paths – the international nature of the programme opens up opportunities in the domestic and international job markets.

A particularly attractive option is the double degree we offer in conjunction with the Linköping University in Sweden. Besides obtaining a master of science at IMC Krems, you will also be accredited with completing the Experimental and Medical Biosciences programme at our partner institution.
