Course summary

The aim of the course is to provide you with an understanding of how microbes can be used to benefit humankind. New technologies in molecular biology, microbiology and computational biology will be taught and it will be shown how these methodologies are applied in biotechnology industries and the underlying biochemistry explained at an advanced level. A laboratory based project will be offered in one of the five taught themes – (i) molecular biology, (ii) computational biology, (iii) applied microbiology, (iv) Biomaterials, and (v) analytical biology to provide our graduates with the laboratory skills required for subsequent employment in biotech/pharmaceutical industries or academia. The Data Analytics Units are designed for non-computing graduates who are looking to apply information technology to their current career, or who are looking to change their career direction. These Units covers a wide range of topics including programming, databases, security, project management and computer networking. During the course you will learn the underpinning theory of these topics, and you will apply this theory in practical scenarios.
