Biomedical Science and Technology

Skoltech M.Sc. fellowship program in Biomedical Science and Technology begins August 2015. The program duration is two years. Education is conducted in English. In the first year we offer courses and seminars and extensive hands-on training in a well-equipped teaching molecular biology laboratory and a brand new bioinformatics teaching laboratory. In addition to courses in the brood area of life science students are expected to take courses in innovation and entrepreneurship and take at least one industry immersion program with our industrial partners. During the second year of the program, students complete individual research projects under the supervision of Skoltech faculty in the Data-Intensive Biomedicine and Biotechnology Centers of Research, Education, and Innovation followed by master thesis defense. Graduates of the program will receive official Masters degree diplomas in Biotechnology. They will obtain a unique skill set that will enable them to excel in research and innovation in academia or industry. Exceptional graduates of the program will have an opportunity to enter the Skoltech Ph.D. program.
