Biotechnology is a mix of all the natural sciences and engineering. It is the innovative use, either direct or indirect, of all living organisms and their parts to improve existing industrial processes.
Biotechnology is the future of sustainable development, from biomining and bioremediation to the development of biomaterial for medicine such as tissue engineering and stem cell therapies.
From bioprocessing to genetic engineering, as well as acquiring cutting-edge scientific skills, you also investigate current commercial biotechnology and future directions.
Extra study of complementary business aspects such as patenting and commercialisation help equip you for the myriad career directions available to biotechnologists.
