  • Biotechnology
    Biotechnology is a field of applied biology which uses living organisms, such as plants, animals and micro-organisms to make or modify products or processes for specific use. Some of its more commonly known terms are genetic engineering, artificial selection and hybridization. Biotechnology is widely used in medicine, engineering and agriculture fields to bring about improvements in food and medicines, treatments for diseases and even waste removal. There is also the emergenceof “Industrial Biotechnology” with a growing market of products using bio-based materials and production techniques in industrial applications. Companies such as Toyota, Dow Chemical, Procter & Gamble, DuPont and Cargill are in various R&D stages, all vying to be ahead in this new branch of technology.
  • Bioinformatics
    Bioinformatics derives knowledge from computer analysis of biological data. It is highly interdisciplinary, using techniques and concepts from informatics, statistics, mathematics, chemistry, biochemistry, physics and linguistics. Thanks to massive yearly funding, America is the best place to obtain a degree inthis study.
  • Biochemistry
    Biochemistry is the application of chemistry to the study of biological processes at cellular and molecular levels. You will study the mechanisms of brain function, cellular multiplication and differentiation, communication within and between cells and organs, and the chemical bases of inheritance and disease.
  • Microbiology
    Microbiology has a major impact on virtually all other scientific disciplines. You will learn about bacterial genetics, anatomy and reproduction. Instructions will also cover topics such as cell biology, microbial genetics and laboratory methods.
  • Molecular Biology
    Molecular Biology is the basic science that seeks an understanding of life processes, the properties and functions of molecules that make up living cells, and how biomolecules operate and interact to drive the complex and diverse behaviors of living systems. The scope ranges from evolution and development to the regulation of gene expression.
  • Biomedical Science
    Biomedical Science is the study of health and assessing and analyzing methods of treating disease. This major is suitable for students with a strong interest in biology and chemistry as well as an interest in the development of medical issues, either in research, health monitoring or treatment of a disease.

You are also required to take a specific number of Soft Skills and Communicative Foreign Language programs as a part of your degree.
