Bachelor of Biotechnology (Honours)

by | Sep 30, 2019

Brief introduction

Biotechnology involves multiple discipline in which biological processes, organisms, cells or cellular components are exploited to develop new useful technologies in research, agriculture, industry and the clinic. Applications of biotechnology range from a simple screening of the useful compound to the production of tissues, drugs, synthetic hormones and enzymes. For example, the use of genetically-altered bacteria (or higher organisms) in the bioconversion of organic wastes, biofuels, treatment of oil spills or as bulk foodstuffs have been the main concerns of modern biotechnology. Biotechnology offered here focuses on four concentrations which are environmental, marine, food and medical biotechnology where the students are able to choose any of these in the 3rd year of their studies. Therefore, our graduates will have the capability to understand and master the fundamental subjects related to biotechnology and apply those knowledge according to their own research interest in their final year of study.
