Course Description

This programme equips students with an in-depth understanding of the core principles and methodologies underlying current biotechnological research, thus, able to pursue careers in bioscience and biotechnology either in industry or academic research. In this programme, students are able to develop the transferable qualities and skills required for employment or research in the biosciences sector. Bioscience students are not only trained in laboratory and research skills but equip with the relevant business and entrepreneurial skills. Students will have an opportunity to work with industry through their internship and to carry out a real-life research project in the bioscience area. All such training will add value to their qualification and benefit their employment.
