What you will study

The course approaches biotechnology with a general and multidisciplinary orientation. Physical, chemical, molecular-biological and cellular notions are provided throughout the course of study.
During the first year you will delve into basic science subjects that allow you to acquire the knowledge necessary to take gradually more and more specific courses in biotechnology.
Establishing a foundation of knowledge in mathematical and physical language, you start from the study of general chemistry to move on to organic chemistry and then to biochemistry in order to learn about the reactions that take place within cells and regulate their metabolism and survival.
The study of general biology evolves into the study of an organism's cells and tissues, the molecules of life such as DNA and proteins, and the mechanisms that allow cells to regulate them.
