Program description

Biotechnologies are now replacing traditional technologies with cleaner, greener alternatives. You will study ‘white’ (industrial) and ‘green’ (agricultural) biotechnology in depth, without the focus on ‘red’ (medical) biotechnology that dominates similar courses. With a strong foundation in biology and the technologies, plus the means to commercialise research, you will graduate with the skills to be the future of clean technologies, in a range of industries from biofuels to food production

You will keep up-to-date with a programme that covers the very latest innovations in biotechnology and updates to reflect the demands of the sector. You will gain practical skills hands-on with intensive laboratory-based teaching to give you workplace-ready skills in areas ranging from analytical biochemistry to electron microscopy. You will also gain insight into the workplace with an optional placement year, taking advantage of our links with industry.
