The Professional Science Master in Biotechnology progam just graduated its third cohort in May 2013!
Read Alumni Comments Below:
"The knowledge I acquired and the relationships I gained throughout the two years of learning and studying together will be invaluable to me in the future!"
Another graduate noted that, "The DNA/RNA Technologies class was very informative and provided an excellent foundational understanding about the technologies used in different industries. This knowledge will enable me to cross the boundaries of my originally chosen discipline, and help me to understand the challenges faced by other aspects of the biotech industry." Other comments stressed the value of the "Scientific Communication in Industry" course, and how the coursework honed much-needed skills required for professional presentations, both written and oral, in the biotech industry.
The novelty of moving toward a long-term goal with the same group of people, i.e., the cohort-style, was cited by several alumni as adding value to the educational experience. "The biggest factor for me was the whole cultural aspect of the cohort-style program. We had a great group of individuals from many different fields and a widely spread demographic that together contributed to valuable interactions throughout the program," was another comment.
"I definitely recommend this program to others looking for cost-effective ways to advance their careers. Getting a graduate degree with these direct, real-world applications is worth its weight in gold!" was the summarizing comment by a graduate.
