Marine Biotechnology - master

The Marine Biotechnology program at UiT’s Norwegian College of Fishery Science aims to educate candidates in the broad field of biotechnology with emphasis on application to marine systems or “Blue Biotechnology”. Students become well prepared for careers in industry and/or research because of our joint focus on innovation and fundamental scientific principles placed between biology and engineering. Students receive one-on-one mentorship and supervision from a professional UiT researcher and typically join an established research group to complete their final project.

The life in our oceans is diverse and new scientific discovery is possible at all levels. This leads to new innovation, new value chains and the development of new processes that support sustainable development goals. Hence, we teach and support student research across a wide range of topics that include bioprospecting for different applications including marine drugs, development of sustainable sea food products and biotechnology for carbon capture and utilization. This is supported by constantly adapting the curriculum to teach modern skills in analytical chemistry, marine microbiology, bioprocess engineering and synthetic biology.

In addition to our focus on top-quality instruction, this program also emphasizes relationships with the local and international industry. We help students and their future employers understand exactly where the advancement of technical knowledge will apply to innovation within both private and public sectors. Tromsø has become the home to many new start-up companies in the blue biotech space with help from this program and the surrounding research culture fostered by UiT.

Objectives, content and organization
The purpose is to educate candidates in modern biotechnological expertise, with particular empasis on use of marine resources, bioactive compounds, gene products and marine rest raw materials. You will qualify for careers in fields such as marine value creation, innovation and research.
