Master's Programme in Biochemistry
In-depth training in understanding structure-function relationships of proteins and their characterisation
Strong focus on practical skills and use of most modern equipment in protein expression and analysis
Highly flexible degree aimed at students with an interest in a research career, taught by an international staff
The International Master’s Degree Programme in Biotechnology is a two-year programme planned around the early integration of M.Sc. students into research groups and the hands-on use of modern biochemical and molecular biology equipment by individual students. Early exposure to research work provides insights into cutting edge approaches in structural and enzymology characterisation as well as cell and molecular biology methods. A completion of a minimum of 120 study units equivalent to ECTS credits is required to complete the master’s degree studies. The flexible programme includes courses in
- protein production and analysis (compulsory)
- biochemical methodologies (compulsory)
- 3-6 week orientation to research work periods in research groups (compulsory)
- basic aspects of crystallographic methods
- structural enzymology
- biochemistry of protein folding
- systems biology
- bioinformatics and biocomputing
- structure-based drug discovery
Additional optional studies include (but are not limited to):
- advanced biotechnology/bioprocess engineering
- animal use in research
- yeast genetics and genomics
- information skills for foreign degree students
- bioreactor technology
- molecular bases of disease
In addition, up to 15 credits can be taken from other suitable courses taught at the Oulu University or any other university, as long as they are of the appropriate level and connected to biochemistry or logically support some aspect of the Protein Science and Biotechnology programme.
Due to the range of courses available in the programme, a wide variety of expertise that can be obtained during M.Sc. level studies at FBMM. The official diploma title received after successful completion of our international M.Sc. programme will be M.Sc. in Protein Science and Biotechnology. Depending on the course choices, the training received may also provide you with excellent proficiency in molecular and cellular biology.
The duration of the M.Sc. thesis research work is flexible depending on the interest of the students and may be three months (more courses/lectures taken) or eight months (longer M.Sc. thesis research period).
