Department of Biotechnology covers research areas that range from understanding the nature and / or the molecular basis of biological processes that involve biological systems, living organisms or derivatives to making or modifying products that will be used in biological applications. The department offers postgraduate (MS and PhD) programs in Biotechnology. Members of the department has strong research activities and collaboration with many local and international academic institutions / research centers. The Department aims at developing interdisciplinary research projects that will help to solve national and international problems. To promote such track, members and graduate students of the department of biotechnology will be encouraged to collaborate with scientists and researchers from different specialties either in BAS, E-JUST, local and international research centers. The Department is also encouraging students to be familiar with the technology developed by the engineers at E-JUST and seek the applications of such technology to solve biological problems.
