The University of Wisconsin–Madison’s highly diverse concentration of bioscience expertise makes it a world leader in biotechnology, life science and medical research.
Among United States public universities, UW-Madison ranks 6th in research expenditures, 4th in non-federally funded research, and 8thin federally funded research (2019). These significant research investments generate results with far-reaching impact.
Drawing on the resources and expertise of a global leader in biotechnology and translational research, we’ve designed the Master of Science (M.S.) in Biotechnology Program for professionals who are ready to broaden their understanding and skills—and advance their careers within the biotech industry.
The M.S. in Biotechnology harnesses Madison’s vibrant commercial biotech industry to provide a learning environment rich in academic and industrial collaboration. The result is a personalized learning experience where motivated students thrive.
If you are a practicing scientist, technical professional, attorney, business development strategist or operations leader who is motivated to grow professionally, this program has been built with you in mind.
Leading-edge instructors are drawn from the University of Wisconsin—Madison’s highly ranked schools of law, medicine, business, pharmacy, engineering and agricultural and life sciences, as well as the surrounding biotechnology industry.
Through partnerships with the University Research Park, the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF)—the University’s patenting and licensing arm—and the Biopharmaceutical Technology Center Institute, we provide students an insider’s look at emerging technologies, start-up companies, and industrial biomanufacturing.
We encourage you to listen and read about the accomplishments of many of the M.S. in Biotechnology Program’s alumni, and then review our impressive and unique curriculum to determine if this is the right program for you.
