The Biotechnology Study Program at BINUS University is aimed at those willing to learn about the principles and applications of modern biotechnology to gain the value of bioresources, develop innovative bio-based products, and solve problems related to bioresource management. Biotechnology is an applied science that combines various branches of science to study the use of living things and the products of living things in the production process to produce goods and services. Modern biotechnology includes genetic engineering tools, the methods for modifying the biological function of an organism by adding genes from other organisms or by the organism itself. The tools can be used to produce new traits of an organism.
The study program emphasizes the application of biotechnology in a wide industrial scope, including agriculture, marine, new material, nutraceutical, and pharmaceutical fields. The students will be enriched with information technology to support the knowledge of bioinformatics. The students also will learn about entrepreneurship to prepare future graduates to be ready to work in national and multinational companies and be able to build biotechnology-based businesses.
The facilities are well-equipped in the areas of biotechnology and bioinformatics. The laboratories are available for students to use during their studies, projects, and competitions, such as biology, chemistry, DNA technology, and computer laboratories. The study materials are provided in the Learning Management System (LMS) based on a website and mobile application. Besides that, the campus area also provides creative classes, a library, study rooms, and a gymnasium.
