The biotechnology is one of the youngest fields of study in the history of the academic education and is natural respond to the needs of the research personnel for the modern economy. The contemporary development is based on the safe technologies which minimalize the demand for energy and are environmentally friendly.

Undoubtedly, the effect of the union of the natural and technical sciences which biotechnologies are, is the contemporary proposal which fullfills these requirements.

The biotechnology field study syllabus gives the students the basis of the natural sciences such as: biology, physics and chemistry as well as the technological sciences (the process engineering) at the level that they will be able to carry out the innovative economical activity independently or in teams.

The biotechnology undergraduate studies are the didactical offer of the FBS and give the natural possibility to continue them at the second degree studies at the Faculty e.g. biology (the molecular biology) and environmental protection (the biotechnology in environmental protection).

The biotechnology field study candidates are interested in the acquisition of the modern descriptive language of the biological processes and the possibility of the application of the described phenomena at the technological level.

The graduates of the biotechnology will be prepared to be employed in the industries: the food industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the production of the top protection products in the medical laboratories, the sevage treatment plants, the utilization of the waste as well as running their own business activities.
