Overview

BS Biotechnology 

Introduction

Biotechnology is at the forefront of major advances in life sciences. Biotechnology refers to the use of plants, animals and microorganisms to create new products or processes. It plays an important role in helping industry, medicine and agriculture to produce foods and medicines, manage disease and pests, and clean up the environment.

Biotechnology is an applied science that uses the tools of biochemistry, molecular biology and other fields of biology to solve problems that affect humans. Bringing together several scientific disciplines, our course produces graduates who have a high standard of cognitive, practical and transferable skills and the knowledge to begin careers in medical research, in hospital and public health laboratories, and also in the pharmaceutical, food and agricultural industries. Analytical, numerical and communication skills developed by biotechnology graduates are also in demand in non science-based careers such as accountancy, journalism and marketing.
