Conduct research at Universiti Malaya
Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Biotechnology
The Bachelor of Science (Hons) Biotechnology is designed to develop students with a strong foundation of knowledge and practical skills that are sought after in the changing world of biotechnology.
Our programme provides an understanding of, and the practical skills behind the use of biologically derived materials for a multitude of applications. Such materials include microorganisms (e.g. bacteria, yeast, algae) and materials derived from them and other biological sources (e.g. enzymes, protein, DNA). These applications focus on three core areas, namely agriculture productions, industrial manufacturing, and human health.
Industrial Training and Undergraduate Project which link students directly to the industry and leading-edge research are some of the added features of this programme, giving it a practical hands-on approach. Students also have the opportunity to become a Research Assistant at Universiti Malaya as part of the university’s collaborative efforts. With both physical and virtual labs, students develop the technical and conceptual skills needed in harnessing living organisms to create technological advances.
