RO1: Students with FPE-21306 or BCT-22803 in their major (BFT, BAT, BES-C) choose RO1B. All other students choose RO1A.
RO2: Students with MOB-20306 as part of their major (BBI-A) choose RO2B. All other students choose RO2A. Students following RO1B (BFT, BAT, BES-C) can follow RO2A in 6WD.
Students following a Bachelor with major in engineering or life science other than BSc Biotechnology will learn more about the exciting developments in biotechnology when following this BSc minor.
After successful completion of this minor students are expected to be able to:
- explain basic principles of genetic engineering, enzymology and process engineering;
- apply recombinant DNA and biochemical techniques;
- apply (mathematic) tools for process engineering and modelling;
- apply basic regulations when working with genetically modified micro-organisms;
- understand basics in process engineering.
This minor is interesting for:
- BBI Biology
- BAS Animal Sciences
- BFT Food Technology
- BES Environmental Sciences
- BPW Plant Sciences
- BVG Nutrition and Health
- The Bachelor Chemical Engineering
For all bèta BSc programmes.
Overlapping courses or content with
BBT Biotechnology, BML Molecular Life Sciences. Both cannot join this minor due to overlap with their programme.
