Biotechnology is one of the three majors part of the Bachelor of Science Life Technologies. This specialization comprises a broad study programme enabling you to discover and be proficient in many aspects of food technology and biotechnology. In addition, you will be able to further complete your study programme during the third year with three of the suggested elective modules. This will allow you to either understand more in depth a subject of your major or to discover a new subject of another major.
This major shares a common part (not mentionned here) with the two other majors of the Life Technologies Bachelor. More information about the food technology and biotechnology study programme as well as information about the Life Technologies Bachelor can be found here.
