About

The Biotechnology program of  Chalmers University of Technology from focuses on the interface between chemistry, biology and medicine, with engineering as a common working tool. 

Overview

It provides students with competencies on how to use engineering principles in the analysis and manipulation of biological systems to solve problems across a spectrum of important applications.

The Biotechnology program of Chalmers University of Technology thus covers the broad base of knowledge from genetics to process engineering provided by expertise from the Departments of Biology and Biology Engineering, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and Physics, at Chalmers, and the units of Chemistry and Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, at the University of Gothenburg.

Career

Biotechnology today is much more than recombinant DNA technology, cellular biology, microbiology and biochemistry. It also embraces process design, engineering, modelling and control.
