MSc Plant Biotechnology and Enterprise (C2K009)
Starting October 2021

Gain the knowledge and skills you need to join the next generation of scientists and entrepreneurs.  This course will provide training in business enterprise, one-to-one mentoring, and the opportunity to develop your own research project.  Our world-class researchers will provide support and share ideas; our state-of-the-art facilities will be available for your use and our industrial and academic networks will provide opportunities to work on areas of real and active interest.  And, of course, all this in the unique environment and atmosphere of Durham University.

One of the principal challenges that our society faces is the need for increased agricultural productivity via improved crop protection and plant biotechnology. Given the quality of the UK plant-science research and education system, the socio-economical context and the increase in global warming-associated natural catastrophes, there has never been a more important time to train new scientists in plant biotechnology. In this programme, you will gain practical and transferable skills to translate ideas into commercial products, enhancing your employability, innovation, and business development know-how.
