Biotechnology is technology based on biology. It is the use of living organisms - often minute, micro- organisms - to create products or perform tasks for us. Those organisms may be as simple as yeast or as complex as cells, genes, bacteria or DNA. By combining cellular and bio-molecular processes, we can develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. Modern biotechnology provides breakthrough products and technologies to combat debilitating and rare diseases, reduce our environmental footprint, feed the hungry, use less and cleaner energy, and have safer, cleaner and more efficient industrial manufacturing processes.
The Course has a strong focus on the business skills that are crucial to the commercialization of biotechnology, including intellectual property, enterprise management and marketing and it is taught by lecturers who are also successful researchers in an industry that is constantly evolving. The course has strong support from the biotechnology industry
