About this course

This programme equips students with an in-depth understanding of the core principles and methodologies underlying current biotechnological research, thus, able to pursue careers in bioscience and biotechnology either in industry or academic research. In this programme, students are able to develop the transferable qualities and skills required for employment or research in the biosciences sector. Bioscience students are not only trained in laboratory and research skills but also in relevant business and entrepreneurial skills. Students will have an opportunity to work with industry through their internship and to carry out a real-life research project in bioscience area. All such training will add value to their qualifcation and beneft their employment.

This programme is endorsed by Institut Kimia Malaysia (IKM). Graduates of this programme can join IKM as a member and can be recognised as a 'Registered Chemist' in Malaysia.
