THE MASTER OF MEDICAL BIOTECHNOLOGY DEGREE

The Master of Medical Biotechnology (MMB) is a professional program that provides students with both a solid foundation of the theoretical concepts and practical industrially applicable laboratory technique experiences used in medical biotechnology industries. In addition, students will also receive training in business plan development and product commercialization.

Admission Requirements

In accordance with our current admission requirements for the MSc program, students entering this program must have a four (4) year BSc or BSc (Honours) degree in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, or accepted equivalent from an academic institution approved by the University of Windsor.

They must have the equivalent of a 70% average or higher in their undergraduate studies when converted to Ontario standards.

Candidates must demonstrate English proficiency by meeting or exceeding an IELTS score of 6.5 (or equivalent – i.e. 83 TOEFL Internet Based Test). If an applicant receives an English language proficiency score of less than 6.5 (or equivalent) they may be offered a conditional letter of acceptance pending successful completion of an approved English Language Training program.

Applicants must pass a successful interview with a representative or agent acting on behalf of the University of Windsor and submit two letters of reference.

This is a premium program as such enrolment is limited. Preference will be given to candidates who exceed the minimum requirements and those who have demonstrated work experience in the field of biotechnology.
