Gain a competitive edge, advance your career

The Master of Pharmaceutical Bioengineering program (PharBE) is a part-time online degree program designed to enable working engineers, scientists, researchers and professionals in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and related industries to explore advanced education. This interactive program covers drug discovery and design, pharmaceutics and translational pharmaceutics, clinical drug and device development, molecular and cellular biology, pathophysiology and pharmacology.  Using live (synchronous), and pre-recorded (asynchronous) lectures, the program provides a path to acquire new skills, gain an edge in your current job, and receive training to transition to a new career in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical industry.

In the program you get to listen to many guest speakers talk about their experience, and you have a better understanding of what types of roles there are in the pharmaceutical industry.
