BIOTECHNOLOGY: INDUSTRIAL AND BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES, M.S.
The field of biotechnology has been growing steadily for decades, but the pace has accelerated in recent years with the advent of new technologies like gene editing and biopharmaceutical production. In response to industry demand, UNH Manchester is expanding its offerings in the biomedical field with a Master of Science in biotechnology: industrial and biomedical sciences.
UNH Manchester’s partnership with the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI) and its BioFabUSA program, which is creating an industry to regenerate human tissue and organs right down the road from our campus, has led to expanded teaching and research facilities on campus. Through skills-based training in our state-of-the-art lab spaces and with industry partners, the M.S. in biotechnology prepares you with laboratory practice, research opportunities, industry experience and transferable job skills to advance your career in the biotechnology, biopharmaceutical and regenerative manufacturing sectors.
Key Program Highlights:
Offered in Manchester, the state’s hub for biotechnology, where we’ve built partnerships with firms that offer co-ops, internships and jobs to students.
UNH offers the only biotechnology master’s degree programs in northern New England.
Full- and part-time options available for working professionals.

Available as an accelerated master’s program, which means UNH undergraduate students may be able to complete a bachelor’s and master’s in as few as five years.
Apply by December 1 for spring admission
Can be completed in 18 months
Biotechnology Innovation Center
We’ve transformed the sixth floor of UNH Manchester into the Biotechnology Innovation Center, a cutting-edge facility for teaching and research in the areas of biotechnology and cellular biology. You’ll get hands-on experience in our state-of-the-art cell-culture teaching laboratory, upstream and downstream processing suites, pilot production laboratory and more. The BIC also features an incubator space for start-up biotech firms, offering opportunities for on-site internships and research.
UNH graduate students learn from — and through — real-world experience. As a student on the Manchester campus, you’ll have the opportunity to complete internships or co-ops at high-profile biotech companies, work with faculty and industry on research, build your professional network and much more.
UNH Manchester faculty are passionate about the ever-changing IT landscape. With small class sizes, they do more than teach — they mentor.
UNH is proud to offer the only master’s-level biotechnology programs in Northern New England.
With the creation of ARMI, UNH Manchester is in the state’s biotechnology hub — and we’ve built a network of biotech companies that offer internships and jobs to students.
