The Department of Biotechnology and Bioindustry Sciences at National Cheng Kung University prepares students to be elite leaders of biotechnology and contribute to global development of bio-industry under the concept that demands drive technical innovation and promote upgrade of bio-industry.


Different from common departments of biosciences, the Department of Biotechnology and Bioindustry Sciences at National Cheng Kung University stands out for its integrated and synergistic approach. We focus not only on integrating hard science with industrial application, but also on training students to understand the demands of bio-industry. Specifically, DBBS emphasizes training for background knowledge of nature science, engineering, medical science, and management. We guide students to appreciating the profession of biotechnology and to analyzing demands of bio-industry, which prepare them for integrated biotech research or industry.

What you will learn

DBBS is comprised of two scholastic groups: (1) agriculture and aquaculture biotech group and (2) biomedical biotech group. Our teaching and research thus include industrial analysis, management and marketing of biotech innovations, as well as training for integrating academics and industry.

Core courses of DBBS cover fields of biosciences, molecular biology, biochemistry, biostatistics, genomics, bioinformatics, bioengineering, biophysical chemistry, industrial analysis, management of biotech innovations, intellectual properties, etc. We believe that the world will be in want of talents fostered in DBBS.
