This programme offers courses in the fields of

Molecular Biology
Bioinformatics etc.

With this unparalleled knowledge and experience, we envision to produce highly qualified graduates that would contribute to the advancement of research and development in the field of Bioprocess Technology.

How you study

In the first year, students will be introduced to the integrate program focusing on two overarching research areas, bioprocess technology and food technology.

Based on their preference and performance following the completion of the first year, students will be selected to specialize their degree program on wither bioprocess technology or food technology. In the final year students will specialize in the areas of bioprocess technology that interest them the most by undertaking their own research projects (dissertations). Learning will be provided through lectures, seminars, laboratory, industrial training (one semester int the third year), as well as problem solving projects. Our staff encourages students to do their final year project in industries and research institutes in Sri Lanka or abroad.
