Medical Biotechnology MSc

The program, which is run together with Semmelweis University Budapest, gives surpassing theoretical and practical knowledge at the frontiers of medicine and informatics. Medical bio¬technologists work in the bio-medicinal field where their responsibilities include research, de¬velopment, application and management tasks. They are capable of modeling and simulating biological systems on computers, applying the methods and instruments of computational biol¬ogy and biochemistry, as well as designing, creating, managing and applying databases in the field of medical biotechnology.

They will be capable of modeling different biological systems on computer, as well as of handling the data in abundance for such systems. As specialists trained in science, informatics and certain fields of medicine, they can be employed in basic research, in the pharmaceutical industry or in the biotechnology industry.
The theoretical basics for the Medical Biotechnology MSc program can be primarily acquired in the Molecular Bionics BSc program. Graduates with a BSc from the following programs also can apply: medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, chemistry, biology, or teachers with biology major-chem¬istry minor. Under certain circumstances the following bachelor diplomas can also be accepted: bioengineering, chemical engineering, medical laboratory diagnostics and imaging analyst.
