About Bachelor of Biotechnology, BSc - at University of Newcastle, Australia

Biotechnology is predicted to be the key for the future, acting as the basis for solving global issues. Your study will see you learn about human and animal diseases, climate change, fuel alternatives and food security. Biotechnology uses living organisms to modify products for a specific human purpose, such as genetically modified crops or creation of a vaccine.

The products of biotechnology are all around us and impact on our daily lives more and more as we learn to make living cells perform useful and specific tasks in a predictable and controlled way. Biotechnology is used to modify human health and the human environment and is currently used in genetic engineering; health and pharmaceuticals; plant and animal agriculture; food production; fuels; and waste management.
