Biotechnology is the application of science and engineering to develop useful products from biological materials. Biotechnology is a very broad area, ranging from cloning to large scale commercial production of antibiotics and foods such as cheese. This programme examines the extraction, recovery, and purification of biochemicals from the meat, dairy, and other industries. It explores technological applications at the industrial level a well as the molecular level.
Note: There will be no new enrolments in the Biotechnology major in 2018. However, please note our Biological Processing stream in the Chemical and Biological Engineering programme as well as out Molecular and Cellular offerings. Students enrolled in 2017 or previously should consult the Faculty of Science and Engineering for programme advice.
