Course info


Biotechnology applies scientific and engineering principles to living organisms in order to produce products and services of value to society. It is used in processes ranging from cheese production, brewing, and wastewater management, through to drug design and gene therapy. The program examines microorganisms, plants and animals in the context of the discovery, understanding, improvement and development of viable products or activities. The discipline combines elements from many areas such as molecular genetics, microbiology, immunology, physics, chemistry, engineering and mathematics.

Further study options

Graduates of the Bachelor of Biotechnology (Honours) have the opportunity to progress into the following programs:

Master of Business
Doctor of Philosophy

Bioinformatics and Innovation Management (Dual major)

The Innovation Management dual majors prepare students for the growing focus of Biotechnology organizations and research groups on seeking markets for their scientific outputs. As the industry matures there is an increasing awareness of the need to be in tune with commercial realities.

While Biotech is increasingly interdisciplinary, relying on teams of scientists with varying backgrounds to make discoveries, it also relies on input from a variety of professions to achieve market outcomes. This requires some understanding of the essentials of intellectual property law, financing ventures, managing people, building networks and alliances, competing internationally, managing projects, marketing products and services, and planning for growth in a competitive environment.

This dual major allows you to develop the business skills required to complement their science skills and be more competitive in the Biotechnology field, whether you choose to work in the public or private sector.
