Biotechnology is the application of biology for the benefit of humanity and the environment. It harnesses living organisms to provide food and medicine, and for tasks such as cleaning toxic waste or detecting harmful substances. Biotechnology has roots in food and agriculture, using yeast to make beer and bread and lactic acid bacteria to make cheese. Modern technologies such as genetic engineering make biotechnology a major part of Ireland’s economic future in biopharmaceuticals, biomedicine, agriculture, the food industry, and the environment. Our BSc Biotechnology is a science-focused and closely mentored course with strong career opportunities and an international outlook. Alongside core knowledge of modern biology, the BSc Biotechnology degree provides tailored training in communications, business, and language skills. Students complete individual projects in research laboratories on campus in their fourth year and have the opportunity to undertake placements in the industry in Ireland or research laboratories across Europe.
