Bachelor degree programme in biotechnology

Learning outcomes

The aim of the education is to equip students with capabilities for expert tasks in the various fields of application of biotechnology (research, teaching, administration, product development, marketing) in both the public and private sectors, at home and abroad. The education implements a multidisciplinary approach. Multiform teaching methods support the achievement of the content objectives of the degrees. Students will also have an opportunity to pursue part of their studies abroad at co-operation universities.

The objective on the Bachelor's programme is that students attain

- an understanding of the basics of the main areas of biotechnology and the preconditions for monitoring development in the field
- the capability to seek information of the field, to interpret and apply it critically
- the capability for scientific thinking and scientific ways of working and the ability to work independently and safely in the laboratory
- sufficient communication skills
- the capability to apply knowledge acquired in working life
the preconditions to complete a Master's degree at a Finnish or foreign university
