Biotechnology is a science that exploits living organisms or components of living organisms to make useful products. Biotechnology promises to revolutionalize the agricultural, industrial, health and environmental sectors.
The Department offers a four year curriculum leading to a B.Sc. in Biotechnology. The program provides basic course work and also includes two months of industrial training and a senior research project on the application of biotechnology in areas relevant to national development.
The Department also undertakes active research programs that emphasize links with the Thai industrial sector. These research projects take advantage of our state-of-the-art capabilities in biotechnology areas that include genetic engineering, industrial biotechnology, food biotechnology, plant biotechnology and bioprocess engineering.
