The Bachelor of Science (Biotechnology) offers a unique combination of the skills and technologies needed to understand the molecular basis of these challenges, and how to address them. Technologies include functional genomics, nano- and gene technologies, synthetic biology, molecular biology, lab-on-a-chip technology, environmental biotechnology, microbiology, and immunology.
This degree will stimulate your critical thinking and problem-solving skills to help you to be competitive in modern biotechnology.
Studies over three years include functional genomics and proteomics, gene technologies, biochemistry, bioinformatics, environmental biotechnology, cell structure and function, chemistry, genetics and molecular biology, microbiology, immunology and more.
During your final year, you will have the choice of two majors: Molecular Biology or Microbiology.
As a graduate, you could be involved in applying the latest technologies and techniques in molecular biology and genetics to solve a range of problems, such as diagnosing genes that cause cancer, making crops and livestock less vulnerable to disease, and making food safer.
