Biotechnology is a multidisciplinary subject that encompasses an exciting range of scientific fields that include: biological science, biochemistry, agricultural sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, medical and environmental sciences. What we aim to address in the field of Biotechnology are solutions to some of the worlds problems. This may be in the form of accelerated industrial processes, production of safer food and ameliorate the quality of our environment.
The multidisciplinary character of Biotechnology provides students with employment opportunities in Research and Development, Quality Control, Clinical Research, Manufacturing and Production, Regulatory Affairs, Marketing and Sales, Information systems, Education and Administration.
Over the last couple of years the Faculty of Science has been expanding and we offer BSc. (Hons) and Diploma courses in Biotechnology in collaboration with Nilai University, Malaysia. More recently, we have partnered with Arkansas Sate University, USA, offering BSc in Biotechnology which is a significant milestone in the short history of our Faculty!
Both international organisations, along with Horizon Campus, have gained the required recognition and accreditations by the Ministry of Higher Education and the University Grants Commission (UGC), respectively. Furthermore, Horizon Campus and Nilai University are both Members of Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU).
These accreditations enable Horizon Campus to recruit some of the very best talent, both locally and internationally, to its faculties thus nurturing the youth of Sri Lanka to excel in the field of Biotechnology in order to face the global challenges.
Furthermore, this productive partnership among students, staff and the Management at all universities anchor the
mission to expand and disseminate knowledge in the field of Biotechnology for the empowerment of socio-economic development of the country.
Biotechnology Internship Program
Horizon Campus has successfully launched a Biotechnology Internship Program on 15.06.2017. The goal of the internship program is to create internships at biotechnology companies in Sri Lanka. The post-genomic era has enhanced the need for the graduates who have cross-disciplinary educations as well as an awareness and understanding of the commercial sector. This program will provide the quality of education and industrial experience that will be critical to the success of student’s career. Through this program, all the students will be able to fully integrate into top-ranked companies in Sri Lanka and to use that biotechnology knowledge to drive the development and application of techniques across agriculture, medical and other industries. The internship program is committed to integrating biotechnology in an interdisciplinary environment.
