The Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Bioprocess Engineering is delivered by DCU's School of Biotechnology in conjunction with TCD School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and the National Institute for Bioprocessing Research and Training (NIBRT). It is accredited by DCU.

The M.Sc. is an interactive and dynamic programme that will develop your knowledge and appreciation of the conceptual and factual bases for bioprocess design and operation. It also develops your understanding of bioprocessing, particularly the structures, roles and experimental methods associated with biopharmaceuticals, their analysis, production methods and technology for monitoring and control of bioprocesses.

It provides an advanced and up-to-date academic base in the major disciplines of bioprocess engineering and fosters a range of transferable skills across a full range of relevant subjects.

Programme

To update and upgrade the knowledge, understanding and skills of graduates who are interested in pursuing or are currently working in the Biopharmaceutical industry. To retrain graduates working in related disciplines, by providing advanced level modules in the theory, analysis design and practical methodology of the rapidly evolving subjects that are associated with this sector.

General Entry Requirements

The programme will be open to graduates and those currently working in industry with an honours degree (minimum second class honours grade 2) in Science or Engineering. Applicants who do not hold an honours degree but who have significant relevant industrial experience will also be considered, and should contact the Programme Chair to discuss this prior to applying.

International Applications

International candidates are expected to have educational qualifications of a standard equivalent to those outlined above. In addition, where such candidates are non-native speakers of the English language they must satisfy the university of their competency in the English language. 

Dublin City University is proud to award merit-based scholarships to high achieving students who enter the Faculty of Engineering and Computing and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences for the 2016/17 academic year. These scholarships are available to Indian applicants only and are based on academic merit to those who have a Full Offer. 

The Faculties also award scholarships of €1,000 to high achievers entering Masters and Bachelor programmes who are ranked by academic achievement.
