Are you ready to change the world? Put scientific advances into practice as a Biotech grad.

Biotechnology is used for the production of pharmaceuticals, food and industrial chemicals, in the development of improved crops and livestock for farming, for environmental clean-up, and in forensics. Modern biotechnology makes practical use of the most recent scientific advances. Our ability to cope with many of the world’s medical, environmental, agricultural and manufacturing problems in the 21st century will depend heavily on advances in biotechnology. This degree is for bright, enterprising students who want to change the world we live in.

As with all our science degrees you start your degree building on the fundamentals of science with courses such as biology, chemistry and maths. You’ll also begin your journey as a biotechnologist with introductory biotechnology.Your following two years see you delve deeper into the multi-disciplinary world of biotechnology, with courses in molecular biology, microbiology, chemistry, genetics and of course biotechnology. You’ll explore current trends and professional issues in the biotechnology industry, including commercialisation of biotechnology. In your final year you’ll complete a research project as part of your honours year.

On completion of your degree you are awarded a Bachelor of Science (Biotechnology).

Honours
The Honours year is a compulsory part of this degree. It provides invaluable practical experience working in a biotechnology lab and gives you the opportunity to experience the thrill of scientific research first-hand. You will use the knowledge you gained in your first 3 years to become part of a research team and complete a supervised research project.
