Biotechnology is the manipulation of living organisms, cells, genes, or molecules to develop services and products that benefit mankind and have commercial value. Biotechnology is a dynamic and evolving area, which is making significant contributions to the ‘smart economy in areas such as healthcare, agri-business, the food industry, and the environment. Biotechnologists have already discovered new ways to diagnose, treat and prevent disease, repair and replace damaged organs, create biofuels and bioplastics, grow crops with better yields, drought, and pest resistance, and remove toxic environmental contaminants. These advancements are based on relatively recent discoveries in the areas of genetic engineering, genome sequencing, and molecular biology in general. The degree in biotechnology at AIT is designed to provide students with the necessary foundation of scientific knowledge, understanding, and skill to build a career as a biotechnologist.
