MSC ENG PROGRAMMES
Bioinformatics and Systems Biology
This MSc Eng programme focuses on the use of computer-based methods and mathematical models to analyse the vast
amounts of biological data produced using high-throughput methods. Examples of biological data include DNA and protein
sequences, mRNA levels, lists of post-translational modifications, protein-protein interaction data, and metabolic pathway
information. Although computational analysis accounts for a large part of the programme, students also gain a deep under-
standing of the underlying molecular biology and the experimental methods used to generate the large volumes of data.
Future career opportunities include management positions or biomedical research at universities or in the biotech and
pharmaceutical industries. dtu.dk/bsb
Focusing on the design of future diagnostic and treatment methods at hospitals and in the field, this is an interdisciplinary
programme offered by DTU in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen. The programme provides you with in-depth
knowledge of the clinical problems facing the modern healthcare sector—–enabling you to develop new technological
solutions—–and covers both engineering and human physiology courses, ranging from the functions of the organs at cell
level to modelling physiological processes in the locomotive apparatus.
These include development of measuring methods and equipment, clinical research, testing and maintenance of complex
technical installations; product development, test planning, sales, marketing, and service; teaching and research.
New pharmaceuticals, enzymes for washing powder and beer brewing, or dyes and other ingredients used in food production
are based on years of interdisciplinary research in biotechnology. This programme gives you fundamental knowledge of bio-
chemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, and process technology. You will learn to apply this knowledge to biotechnological
problems—–ranging from basic research issues to the development of new cell factories and the study of their behaviour in
bioreactors—–and acquire the relevant competences for collecting and analysing wide-ranging data.
Job opportunities in consultancy firms, the public sector, and the biotech industry within research and production of new
medicines, enzymes, and ingredients as well as in the environmental area. dtu.dk/biotech
Chemical and Biochemical Engineering
This MSc Eng programme focuses on chemical and biochemical industrial technology and on the commercial and sustainable
chemical or biochemical conversion of any kind of raw materials into substances and products required by modern society.
Students learn to solve technological problems using chemistry, mathematics, physics, and thermodynamics.
Graduates have the scientific and technological competences to translate concepts of new chemical and biochemical products
and processes into a safe and economically viable production. You may also play a useful role in the practical efforts to remedy
environmental problems and reduce the energy consumption of current production activities. dtu.dk/cbe
