Degree project for the Master Programme in Molecular Biotechnology

Programme: MSc programme in molecular biotechnology
Credits: 15 / 30 / 45 c.
Course syllabi: Degree project D in Molecular Biotechnology, 15 c. / Degree project E in Molecular Biotechnology, 30 c. / Degree project E in Molecular Biotechnology, 45 c.

The aim of the degree project is to train the student in planning, implementing and reporting independent work. The project is meant to provide contacts with research and development and ideally may function as a link between master and PhD studies or between studies and the first employment. The work can be done either within the university or outside, e.g. at a company or a government agency. There is also ample opportunity to do graduate work abroad.

There are a variety of alternative course codes. Contact your thesis coordinator if you are unsure about which degree suits your educational plans.

Here's a GANTT-like schedule displaying who is doing their degree projects. The schedule shows both students from the 5 year programme in Molecular Biotechnology Engineering and the two 2 year master programmes in Bioinformatics and Molecular Biotechnology.

The times stated in the schedule are only estimates.

You can also find contact information to students to aid in the search for opponents.
