Course Overview

The Bachelor of Science (Honours) Biotechnology programme is designed to develop students with the knowledge and practical skills that are highly sought after in the changing world of biotechnology.

The programme provides an overview of the use of biologically derived materials for a multitude of applications and the practical skills behind them. Such materials include microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, yeast, algae) and their derived materials, as well as other biological sources (e.g. enzymes, protein, DNA). These applications are focused on three core areas: agricultural production, industrial production, and human health.

Industrial training and projects that directly link students to the industry and leading-edge research are some of the additional features of this course, giving it a practical approach.
