The Bachelor of Biotechnology (Honours) degree exemplifies a commitment to research-led education. Biotechnology is a fast moving field where scientists use living organisms and their products, to solve real world problems facing modern society. This exciting field has broad applications in medicine, biology, agriculture, manufacturing, renewable energy and engineering. Honours allows the exploration of research possibilities in this field; it gives you preparation for professional life or a higher degree by research through the development of an advanced knowledge of the research principles and methods and theoretical concepts of your discipline, and through the design and implementation of a research project, that develops new understandings or provides solutions to complex problems. Honours Specialisations are available that mirror the teaching and research strengths at the ANU in biotechnology.
