Using state-of-the-art molecular and genetic technology to enhance biological organisms and their products, biotechnology develops novel solutions to medical, environmental and agricultural issues. It is a rapidly developing field of research and industry, and is widely regarded as a major technology of the 21st century.
Biotechnology brings together skills from a wide range of disciplines, including biology, chemistry and computer science. These skills will provide many employment opportunities in the emerging global biotechnology industries.
This course is designed for students interested in pursuing a career in the biotechnology sector whether in the multi-national biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry or the smaller companies exploiting new innovations in the field. It will also prepare you to pursue a research career at a university or in industry.
If you are interested in such careers and have a good first degree in a biological science or biotechnology, with a strong emphasis on genetics and molecular biology, the course is ideal.
