BS in Biotechnology

BS in Biotechnology

Biotechnology is the modern face of the biological sciences. It applies technological advances, particularly those involving the sciences of molecular genetics, recombinant DNA techniques, and molecular diagnostics to solve biological problems. Biotechnology universities and colleges strive to equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue careers in molecular biology, genetics, forensics, plant and animal sciences, food production, therapeutics, agriculture, and environmental sciences. 

Biotechnology courses allow students to specialize in areas such as cell and molecular biotechnology, medical biotechnology, or forensics biology.

Mission

The Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology Program, with separate concentrations in Cell and Molecular Biotechnology, Medical Biotechnology, and Forensic Biology, aims to produce skilled and knowledgeable biotechnologists who are capable of applying their acquired knowledge to scientific research and development in medicine, science, agriculture, forensics and the environment for the benefit of their societies, while maintaining the highest standards of professional ethics in their careers.

Program Goals

The goals of the Biotechnology Program are to:

  • Supply society with biologically literate citizens who are capable of advising and of responsible decision making.
  • Produce ambitious, creative graduates who are interested in continuing their education in the biosciences.
  • Practice scientific inquiry and appreciate its role in the development of research, science, technology and society.
  • Produce responsible biotechnology professionals to fulfill the employment and research needs in the biotechnology industry in the UAE and the region.
  • Contribute to advancement of agriculture, medicine, and environmental sciences through the application of biotechnology theory and recombinant DNA technology.
  • Enhance the students’ ability to integrate their acquired math, computer, and biosciences’ knowledge and skills to investigate and solve biological problems.
