Place yourself at the forefront of innovation, engineering organisms to address issues of food security, disease and climate change with the ANU Master of Biotechnology.

    Study alongside our leading researchers who work on issues of global importance in areas of biochemistry and molecular biology in the biomedical, animal and plant sciences.

    You will also consider the social and ethical impacts of biotechnological research.

    Our Canberra location means you will learn about the work done by Australia’s largest government employers in biotechnology.


    The Master of Biotechnology provides a pathway for science graduates with background knowledge in biochemistry molecular biology and chemistry to acquire new knowledge, or extend and update your theoretical and practical understanding of modern biotechnology. 

    You’ll be prepared to carry out research in basic, medical or agricultural sciences in university, industry or government research institutions. Opportunities exist in scientific, pharmaceutical and pathology companies, or in government and public service positions.

    Completing a Master of Biotechnology (Advanced), with a research component, can also lead to a PhD.
