Introduction to the course
Biotechnology is one of the interdisciplinary subjects of biological science. The different courses of our Department deal with the major fundamental and as well as modern elements of the global significance of biotechnology. The main focus of our course is to identify every scientific detail of the subject both in the context of “traditional” versus “modern” biotechnological processes designed according to the current needs of the society. The main objective of the course is to make students well fitted for different biotechnological processes/ products and enterprises with a modern global outlook.
