In 2004, the Biotechnology undergraduate education programme was launched in the Faculty. The total number of students has enrolled in Biotechnology is now more than 1000 who have been trained to have good specialized knowledge, background, and skills to meet society’s job requirements.
Biotechnology undergraduate education programme was standardized according to the programs of the world's TOP 100 universities. There are 3 major specialized branches: Agriculture, Food, and Biomedicine. The Biotechnology training program is an advanced programme in which practice courses make up over 50% in total subjects, combined with teaching, internship, and apprenticeship at the factories and companies. Many modern labs are equipped for teaching and research such as Biochemistry lab, Microbiology lab, Plant tissue culture lab, etc.
After graduation, biotech engineers can work in:
- Biomedical engineering fields such as vaccine production, genetic diagnosis, in vitro fertilization, gene therapy, stem cell technology;
- Environmental fields such as environmental treatment, product toxicity assessment, waste treatment, environmental protection; - Agricultural fields such as cross-breeding, gene-engineering to produce new plant varieties, microorganism preparations for veterinary medicine, fishery, and fertilizer.
- Food technology such as food processing, post-harvest preservation, food quality management.
The students of the Applied sciences faculty can be confident in their professional knowledge, English skills as well as soft skills training at school.
According to a survey conducted in 2016, 100% of graduated students from the college have jobs within one year of graduation.
Training Chemistry, Biotechnology engineers with high quality and good specialized skills meeting all society’s job requirements are the goals of Applied sciences Faculty and Ton Duc Thang University.
