Master in Biochemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology [120.0] - BBMC2M
Students on the Master in Biochemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology programme must acquire knowledge and technical expertise which enable them to gain advanced understanding of and deal experimentally with issues relating to the structure, working and use for biotechnical purposes of living cells and their molecular components. Not only will they simply learn, but, more importantly, they will be able to learn independently
The research focus prepares students to become researchers.Specialized courses deal with issues that are at the edge of human knowledge. There is emphasis on experimentation and academic communication, both written and oral. The programme includes a placement or training in a laboratory outside UCL, preferably abroad.
The professional focus in biotechnology enables students who wish to go on to work in industry to have the opportunity of a work placement so that they can play an active part in the work of a company in the biotechnology sector and begin to gain a reputation. The programme comprises courses on biotechnology as well as introductory courses on the creation and management of companies.
The teaching focus is a specially adapted programme designed for teachers at higher levels in secondary education.
The programme comprises core subjects of 75 credits, a focus (30 credits) as well as an option course of 15 credits.
Students must choose one of the following focuses : research, professional (biotechnology) or teaching.
The option courses available are : biochemistry, molecular genetics and microbial cellular physiology, plant molecular genetics and cellular physiology, animal and human molecular genetics and cellular physiology.
Wathever the focus or the options chosen, the programme of this master shall totalise 120 credits, spread over two years of studies each of 60 credits
Whatever focuses and option courses are chosen, the Master in Biochemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology gives direct access to a doctorate in science.
