BS in Biotechnology

Biotechnology is the use of biological processes, organisms, or systems to manufacture products intended to improve the quality of human life. Biotechnology is of significant importance in a number of industries, from agriculture to medicine.
Students can choose to specialize in cell and molecular biotechnology or medical biotechnology.

Mission

The Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology Program, with separate concentrations in Cell and Molecular Biotechnology and Medical Biotechnology, aims to produce skilled and knowledgeable Biotechnologists who are capable of applying their acquired knowledge to scientific research and development in medicine, science, agriculture 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.
