About this course

Our understanding of how the molecules of life actually work is increasing every day and opens up an exciting new world of possibilities in biotechnology.

Biotechnology is the use of biological knowledge to develop new processes and products for use in industry, health, agribusiness and other areas of human technology. Biotechnology advances can be based on knowledge from biological sciences, chemical sciences, physical sciences or engineering.

This major will provide you with training in a relevant discipline area, with specialisations in agrifood, molecular, biomedical and chemical biotechnology. You will also discover how the products of scientific research are commercialised.

Careers:
Training in biotechnology provides skills for jobs in many fields, including:

Agriculture and agribusiness
Food technology
Forensic science
Medical and veterinary sciences
Waste management.
Employment opportunities can also be found in a wide range of industries within both the private and public sector.
