Graduates in Biotechnology at the University of Granada are professionals who will be able to apply scientific and technological knowledge to modify, improve, and use biological systems at the structural levels of the organism, cell, and molecule. This knowledge will be applied by means of innovation and the development of research processes to generate new products and services of social and economic interest in areas such as health, food, agriculture, environment, conservation, and chemistry, among others. Graduates in Biotechnology will thus have multidisciplinary training that integrates knowledge of the functioning, potential, and transformation of biological systems, their scientific and technical foundations as well as expertise in industrial production along with new technologies. Graduates will be able to carry out their professional activity in different fields of research, innovation, higher education, health, and business.
