We offer:

Key features of program:

Applied Biological Sciences and Biotechnology

Healthcare

Agriculture

Food


Range of module choices to suit subject
interests


Combinations of modules which qualify for
one of the
named specialist awards


Placements in companies with prospective
future employment


Develop key skills and employability
throughout the degree


Defining principles of program:


Generic (general academic) competences,


Subject specific competences,


Subject specific learning outcomes.


The programme includes many elements that are
subject specific
(levels 3

Other elements
relate

to the context of the degree programme and
give a broad appreciation of the relevant
underpinning in:


-

physical,


-

chemical,


-

biological or


-

nutritional principles,


-

economic

and business analysis,


-

human behaviour,


-

social and environmental

context

and the
linkages

between these.

Programmes concerned with applied biology

Where they will go:

agriculture
are designed to develop the knowledge and skills required by
those who may go on to manage agricultural enterprises and those who are
involved in closely related official or commercial research and advisory work.


What they will know:

Graduates with agricultural specialization will have a thorough understanding of
crop and animal production methods and use of animal, plants and their
products, including food and non
-
food materials; Underpinning scientific,
economic and business principles.

In particular:

-
they will be able to identify technological and economic problems encountered
in current production systems;

-
evaluate new techniques and, where appropriate, apply them to commercial
practice;

-
know how to organize and manage a business for profit; identify and evaluate
public concerns over food production practices and evaluate the wider
consequences of agricultural activities.

-
programme in
food biotechnology

is designed to develop the
knowledge and skills required by those who are involved in food supply,
manufacture and sale and associated regulatory and advisory workers.


What they will know:

Graduates specialized in food biotechnology will have an understanding of
the characteristics and composition of major food materials, the
microbiology, nutritional quality, chemistry, physical properties and eating
qualities of food, and the impact of food storage and processing.

In particular:

-
they will be able to identify and respond to technological and economic
challenges encountered in current food chains;

-

evaluate new techniques and, where appropriate, apply them to
commercial practice;

-

understand the appropriate legislation;

-

to identify and evaluate public concerns on food safety;

-

evaluate the wider consequences of food chain activities and minimize any
harmful effects on the environment and on people.
