This programme offers multidisciplinary training with a strong experimental approach to future researchers in the fields of Biotechnology and Bioengineering

The Master in Biotechnology and Bioengineering was founded with the objective of

training professional researchers in areas in which our Institures are involved:





Food Biotechnology



Molecular Oncology


New Bioactive Compounds

Molecular Pathology

Biomedical Engineering


Organic Synthesis




At present, Biotechnology is revolutionizing different areas such as health, agriculture, food or environmental protection, allowing us to address new challenges that were unthinkable until recent decades and accelerating the achievement of results. 


Bioengineering takes place in a large multidisciplinary framework of scientific and technological areas. Through integrated and coordinated research, these fields complement each other to develop basic technologies, new products and new applications that improve quality of life while generating wealth and welfare.

Why study this Master?


Joint training in Biotechnology and Bioengineering has a high potential and economic interest due to the growing applications of these disciplines in many industries and sectors. Therefore, the design of this Master will contribute to the formation of highly specialized scientists capable of tackling problems by applying multidisciplinary approaches, significantly adding to society's wealth, quality of life and well-being.

Within the Miguel Hernández University of Elche, this program constitutes an opportunity for formative continuity for Graduates in Biotechnology, Food Science and Technology, Environmental Sciences, Pharmacy and Medicine; as well as Materials, Computer and Agricultural Engineering. Graduates in Biology, Biochemistry, Physics, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering are also among the candidates to study this Master.

At the Miguel Hernández University, multiple

lines of research related to Biotechnology and Bioengineering are being developed.

Researchers are involved in the teaching activities

of this programme, which allows students to immerse in research projects and specialize in an area of interest.

A research-oriented Master's
