The MSc in Bioprocessing explores the fundamental science behind bioprocessing ranging from molecular biology to downstream processing in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals. The course will equip students with the latest research advances including data analytics, predictive modelling and new methods to manufacture protein products beyond conventional bacterial and cell culture-based methods.
Ireland is a home for 24 of the world's top biotech and pharma companies, producing €47.7 Billion of materials last year.
