  • Brief Description:
    Biotechnology is seen as the technology that would heal; feed and fuel the world. Thus, huge amounts of money have been poured into this area globally. The Malaysian government has identified Biotechnology as one of the focus for the growth of Malaysia when it launched the National Biotech Policy on April 28, 2005. 
    Since then, various new investments and traditional companies have invested in biotechnology-related products or turned to biotechnology to improve their products and facilitate the manufacturing process to be cleaner and more cost effective. This has created an ever-increasing job market for trained biotechnologists. 
    Besides, to ensure the participation of Malaysia in the global marketplace, she needs world class people to lead world class companies. Hence, it is essential that Malaysia nurtures her potentials to be the best biotech brains in research and product development. 
    The UCSI University MSc (Biotechnology with Management) is a coursework-based programme that aims to produce postgraduates with expertise in both the practical and theoretical aspects of the specialized areas in Biotechnology with the relevant skills for independent research. Students would learn to conceptualize current economics, ethical, legal and social issues related to biotechnology to generate, develop and communicate creative solutions scientifically. 
    Furthermore, thies programmes also develop managerial and leadership skills, enabling students to apply their scientific knowledge successfully and training them to be bioentrepreneurs / technopreneurs of the next generation with the ability to translate research outcomes into future business opportunities. This multi-disciplinary programme would serve the industry needs better than the traditional mono-disciplinary model as it allows students a broader range of choices in modules to meet their individual and particular career goals.
