Bachelor of Biotechnology (Hons)



This programme provides training in the practical application of organisms, or their cellular components, to manufacturing, service industries and environmental management.

It provides sound training in core Molecular Biosciences (Biochemistry, Genetics, Microbiology, Molecular Biology and Immunology), leading to different areas of Biotechnology.

Compulsory Biotechnology projects as well as internships with biotechnology and molecular bioscience companies will further enhance the employability of graduates.

  • The programme spans a variety of activities, from optimisation of processes such as those involved in producing antibiotics, vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, and genetically engineered transgenic plants and animals, to carrying out gene therapy, improving water and land management, and remedying pollution
  • Well-equipped labs, where all Biotechnology undergraduates will have the opportunity to use advanced equipment such as the Real-Time PCR, HPLC, Bioreactor, Sonicator and Inverted Microscope
