Bachelor of Science - Biotechnology

The University of Adelaide

The modern biotechnology field is constantly evolving. It uses many current technologies such as protein production and purification, genomics and combinational chemistry to produce foods, drugs and other products. The Bachelor of Science (Biotechnology) provides training in both the molecular basis for biotechnology and the bioprocess technology required for the development of biotechnology products. The program is based around the recognised research strengths of the University of Adelaide in molecular biology, animal, plant and microbial biotechnology, structural biology and bioprocess engineering. It provides students with a unique cross disciplinary approach, which incorporates expertise from the Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences.
