Program Description

Bachelor in Biotechnology

Biotechnology is a discipline that sits at the intersection of biology and technology. It has emerged as a major contributor to the advancement of life sciences, such as increased agricultural productivity, breakthroughs in human health care, and new solutions to environmental problems. Biotechnology of today embraces knowledge areas, such as process design, engineering, modeling and control, recombinant DNA technology, cellular biology, microbiology and biochemistry.

The biotechnology program at the Indonesia International Institute for Life Science (i3L) focuses on the interface between chemistry, biology, medicine, and engineering, in-depth assessments of the real-world applications of biotechnology, and legal and business aspects related to the global development of bio-based businesses. Our unique approach is designed to give students a solid foundation in biosciences, hands-on biotechnology skills, a thorough understanding of the scope and impact of biotechnology, and a global perspective on the development of the biotechnology industry.
