It's useful to know

Biotechnology is the group of disciplines or sciences that studies living beings or parts of living beings in order to obtain goods and services from them. Its area of study falls between biology, biochemistry and engineering, and it has a large impact in pharmacy, medicine, microbiology, food science and agriculture, among other fields. The knowledge possessed by biotechnologists, which connects biology and chemical engineering, allows them to optimize and carry the synthesis of products that impact all the areas mentioned out on a large scale.

One area of biotechnology is the direct use of organisms for the production of organic products for consumption, recycling, waste treatment or to clean areas polluted by industrial activities (biomediation). There are also applications of biotechnology that do not use live organisms; the DNA microchips used in genetic analysis is one example. Many products are produced simply using the enzyme reactions of microorganisms.

Modern biotechnology is frequently associated with the use of genetically modified microorganisms, such as Escherichia coli or the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae for the production of substances such as insulin or antibiotics. It can also refer to transgenic animals or transgenic plants or modified animal cells, such as Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) among many others, which are used for research by the pharmaceutical industries, through which biotechnology is also commonly associated with research into new therapies and new means of diagnosis.

Learning objectives

The objectives of the Bachelor's Degree in Biotechnology are to instil an interest in learning and applying the knowledge attained in different situations and contexts; to establish the bases for developing biotechnological processes on the basis of knowledge and improving the transformations carried out by living beings; to learn the conceptual, manual and technical tools for improving existing industrial processes, and to endow students with the capacity to apply the knowledge acquired to different problems and areas of knowledge (chemistry, agriculture, health, nutrition, the environment, etc.) for the production of goods and services.

The organisation of the Bachelor’s degree.

The Bachelor's Degree in Biotechnology is a four-year course, during which students will achieve the skills for learning experimental methodologies, skills for applying scientific reasoning to experimental design and to data gathering, processing, interpretation and analysis. In short, you will learn a new way of thinking and solving problems, by applying the scientific method.

The first year consists of the so-called basic subjects: Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Mathematics, as well as a practical subject called Integrated Scientific Techniques, which helps students to acquire and develop the skills and competencies of laboratory work.

The second year consists of the compulsory subjects that will enable students to learn what living organisms are like from cellular and molecular points of view, and what the thermodynamic principles are which govern them, as well as an introduction to the world of chemical engineering.

In the third year you will complete learning in compulsory subjects to do with the processes that living organisms use for transforming matter, as well as the energy flows associated with those transformations. That same year will also see students learning how to use chemical engineering as a means to simulating or reproducing these processes for a specific purpose. To complete their education, students will work with data-bank bio-informatics management tools, which provide a great quantity of information on living organisms, including their structure and functions. Given that the profession of biotechnologist is geared towards several aspects of the industry, biotechnology graduates need to be capable of carrying out responsibility tasks in designing, production and management. That is why third-year students will come into contact with biotechnology-related social, legal, economic and management aspects.

Fourth-year students will take a step towards specialisation and professionalisation given that they have to choose two optional modules among the following: Industrial Application of Biotechnology; Cell and Molecular Biotechnology; Fundamental Biotechnology and Molecular Physiology. In addition, you will be offered some optional subjects: Business Placements, Biomolecular Design, Bioanalysis, Bioinorganic Chemistry, Natural Products and an Introduction to Professionalisation. To complete their Bachelor’s degree, students will have to do a bachelor's thesis where they will be able to apply all the skills they have learned to date.

Calendar and timetables

Through the following links you can access the calendars and timetables that correspond to this bachelor's degree.

The academic calendar marks the beginning and end of classes, non-teaching days, holidays, exam periods, and so on. The administrative calendar marks the periods to make the different formalities administrative.

Placements

Students have to gain a series of credits, as part of their studies, which correspond to internships in companies or institutions relating to the bachelor’s degree they are studying. The teaching load is determined in accordance with the curriculum.

Bachelor's thesis

To obtain the degree, students have to complete a bachelor's thesis (TFG) which serves to assess the general skills they have acquired over the course of the degree programme and offers a summary of the skills and knowledge they have acquired. The teaching load of the thesis depends on the curriculum of the degree.

Mobility

Students can complete part of their degree programme abroad through the Erasmus programme, which enables them to carry on their studies whilst undertaking an international exchange with academic value in a European university.

They also have access to grants for placements at universities in Spain and on other continents, thanks to bilateral agreements, the SICUE programme and the expansion of the Erasmus+ Programme.
