David Burge is planning a career in medical research. He selected RMIT's Master of Biotechnology to hone his research skills and build the network necessary to find employment in his chosen field.
Master of Biotechnology
To people thinking about postgraduate study I’d say make the most of being at RMIT. Get involved; get to know other students, your instructors and lecturers. It’s the perfect time to build a network that’s valuable at university and beyond.
I aim to do medical research so RMIT’s Master of Biotechnology was a logical choice for postgraduate studies.
My first degree is a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. I want to build research skills, and develop a network that will enhance my employment options.
RMIT’s Biotechnology program has a practical base. My current research project is in a bacteriology lab; as well as helping increase my skills and experience it introduced me to a proper workplace environment.
I’ve had the chance to network at conferences and ceremonies. While volunteering at the 2014 Plant Biotechnology Congress I was able to meet other people working in the field and learn about their research.

In 2013 I received the School of Applied Sciences Biotechnology Postgraduate award. I plan to work in my field before pursuing a PhD. Ideally I’d love to be involved in public education and awareness related to science.
I am friendly, patient and helpful.
I love what I do because I’ll able to help people through science.
