Applied Biology and Biotechnology
Objectives of Programme
The Biology (Applied Biology and Biotechnology) Programme is designed to equip the students with the practical uses of biological knowledge and to inculcate in the students an entrepreneurial and problem-solving ability. It emphasizes technologies and applications relevant to biology-based industries and institutions such as biomedical, pharmaceutical, biotechnological, and food industries and the environment. The aim is to make the training relevant to the society, for example, in the conservation of natural habitats and endangered species or reducing the effects of environmental pollution, and so on.
The specific objectives of Biology (Applied Biology and Biotechnology) Programme are as follows:
(i) To stimulate appreciation of the science of Biology and its diverse applications.
(ii) To provide the students with a broad, sound and balanced knowledge in a range of areas of basic Biology, Applied Biology and Biotechnology in a stimulating and supportive environment that is enriched by research.
(iii) To prepare the students for teaching in basic Biology and for post-graduate research work in Biology/Applied Biology/Biotechnology or other Biology-related discipline.
(iv) To inculcate in the students the knowledge and skills needed for self -employment.
To be eligible for the award of the B.Sc. (Hons) Degree in Biology (Applied Biology and Biotechnology), the student must register for and pass a minimum of 165 units, which must include all the Compulsory Courses, University General Courses, NUC Courses and SIWES as presented below:
