Medical Biotechnology MSc

The program, which is operated jointly with Semmelweis University Budapest, allows students to gain advanced theoretical and practical knowledge at the intersection of medicine and informatics. Medical biotechnologists work in the rapidly developing bio-medicinal field where their responsibilities include research, development, application and management. They are able to model and simulate biological systems on computers, are familiar with the current methods in molecular diagnostics and therapies, as well as design, create, manage and use databases in the field of medical biotechnology. Medical biotechnologists are able to handle and interpret large-scale data sets of medical relevance. As specialists trained in science, informatics and specific fields of medicine, they can be employed in basic research, or in the field of pharmaceutics, medical/molecular diagnostics or biotechnology.

The program start is in February (spring semester) each year, with a preparatory semester starting in September (autumn semester).
