MSc - Master of Science
Entrepreneurship Molecular Chemistry Molecular Physics Molecular Biology
Biomedical and molecular sciences are fast-moving fields that explore complexities of biological systems, often to benefit human health through the discovery of treatments or cures for diseases. Here in Dundee, these fields are particular research strengths. These sectors require not only sound knowledge and practical skills in biosciences, but a strong understanding of entrepreneurship, leadership and decision-making given the opportunities available.
This course focuses on key areas in the biotech and pharmaceutical sectors, to help prepare you for a future in these industries. You'll gain knowledge and skills that employers are looking for – including in-depth understanding of molecular and cellular mechanisms of a range of diseases, and how this can help develop better means of diagnosis and treatment. This bioscience experience is enhanced by the business acumen and entrepreneurship skills you'll develop in tandem. You'll have access to drug discovery and phenotypic screening technologies that are of industry standard – and rarely found in an academic setting.
Following the taught component of this course, you'll undertake a research project where you will focus your business ideas on a bioscience research development, applying what you've learned to a real-life project. You'll work alongside University researchers and staff at our Centre of Entrepreneurship - a facility dedicated to improving entrepreneurship opportunities for students and staff.
Employers in the biotechnology and biopharmaceutical industries expect their postgraduate recruits to have strong, broad-ranging skills. They're looking for people who have advanced technical and communication skills, are confident team-workers, independent researchers, good project managers and are at the leading edge of their specialism. Our courses will help you develop and refine these skill sets alongside your knowledge of the field. This can help set you on the path to a career in bioscience entrepreneurship. You'll develop the attributes needed to move to work in emerging start-up or established, often multinational, companies in the biosciences sphere.
