In this course you will focus on molecular biotechnology, including molecular genetics, bioinformatics, the microbiology and immunology of infectious diseases and stem cell technology. You can choose optional units in these areas according to your interests.
Laboratory classes will help improve your research capabilities and technical skills, such as DNA cloning and sequencing. An advanced laboratory unit and/or individual research projects will further hone your laboratory skills for a professional research environment.
Your practical work may also include real-life situations involving experimental design, technique selection and solving practical problems in the laboratory.
Alternatively, project units can be used for biological and medical research at a theoretical level, fostering critical analysis of scientific literature and the formulation of novel hypotheses and research proposals.
You will graduate with the knowledge and practical skills required to work at an advanced level in the biomedical sector and other biotechnology related industries.
