Industrial Biotechnology is a science which uses living organisms and systems to turn "waste" into a wide range of products. For example:
By redesigning and improving nature’s enzymes, Industrial Biotechnology carries out manufacturing sustainably: reducing pollution and conserving precious resources such as oil.
Industrial Biotechnology growth in Scotland requires an increasingly large pool of people with the right skills and training. This new HND in Industrial Biotechnology has therefore been designed by Universities and Ind. Biotech. Companies to provide that training. It covers a wide spectrum of subjects to equip learners with a broad understanding of biology, chemistry and process engineering in an industrial biotechnology context.
Successful completion of this HND will prepare you for employment as a Science Laboratory Technician, Research Scientist, Process Operator and Production Scientist. It will also enable for progression onto related university courses such as Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Applied Bioscience, Biomedical science and Chemistry.
