In 2004, 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 the society’s job requirements.
Since 2015-2016 school year, the 4-year 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 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 Biochemisty 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 Applied sciences faculty can be confident on their professional knowledge, English skills as well as soft skills trained at school.
According to a survey conducted in 2016, 100% of graduated students from college have jobs within one year of graduation.
Training Chemistry, Biotechnology engineerers 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.
