Main focus

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.

Competences

1. Model simulate, and optimise biotechnological processes and products.
2. Analyse the stability, monitoring, and instrumentation of biotechnological processes
3. Design the basic structure of a biotechnological plant, and organise and manage it.
4. Have knowledge of the basic structure and functional principles of biological systems.
5. Understand the mechanisms of the modification of biological systems and propose ways to improve them and their use.
6. Correlate the modification of organisms with benefits for health, environment and/or quality of life.
7. Design new products from modified organisms and the modelling of biological phenomena
