FOUNDATIONAL COURSE IN BIOTECHNOLOGY typically covers principles and practices of the field such as genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, molecular biology, and microbiology. It includes techniques such as DNA cloning, protein expression, and cell culture. Students may also learn to use bioinformatics tools to analyse data.
A course in biotechnology may aim to prepare students for a career in the field, by providing them with the knowledge and skills needed to work in research and development, biomanufacturing, or regulatory affairs.
Developing practical skills: Many biotechnology courses will have a lab component where students can gain hands-on experience in techniques such as DNA cloning, protein expression, and cell culture. Students may also learn to use bioinformatics tools to analyse data.
Developing critical thinking skills: Biotechnology is a complex field that requires the ability to analyse and interpret data, as well as to think creatively to solve problems.
A course in biotechnology may aim to develop these skills in students, through exercises such as case studies, group projects, and research assignments.

COURSE DURATION: 2 days
Research and Development: This is the core area of biotechnology where scientists and researchers develop new products, processes, and technologies to improve human health, food production, and the environment. This can include working in areas such as drug discovery, genomics, proteomics, agricultural biotechnology, and biofuels.
Biomanufacturing: This involves the large-scale production of biotechnology products such as vaccines, proteins, and enzymes. Biomanufacturing requires expertise in process development, engineering, and quality control.
Regulatory Affairs: This involves ensuring that biotechnology products comply with regulatory requirements and safety standards. Regulatory affairs professionals work with government agencies to obtain approval for new products and ensure ongoing compliance.
Sales and Marketing: Biotechnology companies require sales and marketing professionals to promote their products and services to potential customers. These professionals require a good understanding of the science behind the products and the needs of the market.
Medical Science Liaison: This role involves acting as a bridge between a biotechnology company and the medical community, by providing education and support to healthcare professionals.
Intellectual Property: Biotechnology companies require legal experts to manage and protect their intellectual property rights. This can involve patent prosecution, licensing, and litigation.
Science Communication: This role involves communicating scientific concepts to a variety of audiences, such as the general public, policymakers, and investors. Science communicators may work in journalism, public relations, or marketing.
