Outcomes of Biochemistry and Biotechnology Training
The integration of most of the established knowledge in biochemistry and biotechnology with skills that are relevant to the working and further study environment found in most enterprises globally at an operational level is the primary outcome of this programme. The articulation and application of all this knowledge and these skills to such familiar and novel situations as are found for example in the production, the research and development workplaces are some of the outcomes which we match with potential employers.
Biochemistry and biotechnology students will be equipped with the knowledge and skills required for employment in the biochemical and related industries as technical, production, entry level research and development personnel. Students are adequately prepared for advanced training in Biochemistry programs including the BSc Honours, MSc, PhD and postdoctoral studies.
Students equipped with biochemistry and biotechnology at any degree level have increased their opportunities to work in:
- Biotechnology sector
- Biomedical technology and engineering
- Forensic pathology
- Legal sector
- Agricultural and medical research sectors
- Food industry
- Cosmetic industry
