As in all undergraduate programmes at PolyU, students complete 30 credits of General University Requirements in which their language competency, personal development and broad global perspective will be developed.
Students complete the Discipline Specific Requirements in mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology to build a sound foundation for their studies.
Upon completion of the foundation subjects, students are required to complete core biological, biochemical and biotechnological subjects before proceeding to select their Elective Subjects in biotechnology.
In the final stage, students complete a Final Year Project in which they tackle a scientific problem or research topic, utilising the discipline specific knowledge, concepts and generic skills developed through the different stages of this programme.
To cater for the multidisciplinary nature of the current developing trend in biotechnology, students have room in this programme to select Free Elective Subjects in other areas of interest, such as in information technology, business, marketing, engineering, etc.
