It is therefore a career option that is respected all over the world for its direct impact on humanity. The Bsc.(Hons.) program in biotechnology is a course of study that opens the doors for research and development for students. It is a practically oriented program that imparts skills that become an asset once the students graduate out of this program. Oftentimes, the students are given extensive training in genetic technology so that treatments for various diseases, both potential and current can be formulated and taken out to the market in a prompt manner. Graduates of this course can find work in research agencies (private and public), pharmacological organizations, universities and colleges as professors (after Msc.), health ministry as subject matter specialists and many more. Some of the basic courses taught in this program are Biophysics, Biochemistry, Microbiology principles, plant biotechnology, DNA technology, environmental biotechnology etc.
