Biotechnology aims to apply the latest molecular techniques to modern-day problems in industrial and environmental situations. Biotechnologists study plant, animal and microbial sciences, underpinned by biochemistry, genetics, computing and some applied aspects of agriculture, environmental science and food science. Fundamental research in these areas will help to shape the development of the industrial world. Our biotechnology course places particular emphasis on recent advances in animal, plant and microbial technology.
