Bachelor of Biotechnology

Australian National University (ANU)

Algal biofuels, drought-resistant crops, and bionic eyes may sound like things of the distant future, but these are just some of the projects our biotechnologists are working on today. In the Bachelor of Biotechnology, you will learn the foundations of biology, from genes through to ecology, while examining important questions about ethics and intellectual property. This program gives you the knowledge to develop the fuel sources, foods and medical treatments of the future while teaching you to think ethically about how they will change our society.
