The programme focuses on the interface between chemistry, biology and medicine, with engineering as a common working tool. It provides students with competencies on how to use engineering principles in the analysis and manipulation of biological systems to solve problems across a spectrum of important applications.
The programme thus covers the broad base of knowledge from genetics to process engineering provided by expertise from the Departments of Biology and Biology Engineering, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and Physics, at Chalmers, and the units of Chemistry and Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, at the University of Gothenburg.
In recent decades, gene modification has revolutionized the biotechnology industry, giving rise to countless new products and improving established processes. However, biotechnology as practiced today is much more than recombinant DNA technology, cellular biology, microbiology and biochemistry.
It also embraces process design, engineering, modelling and control.
The practical applications of biotechnology include age-old techniques such as brewing, fermentation and cheese making, all of which are still important today. The introduction of new techniques based on fundamental biological research has resulted in major advances. Microorganisms and cells (or parts thereof) are utilized to produce valuable products, and new medicines are products of biotechnology.
