The College of Sciences offers a Bachelor of Sciences in Biotechnology
for the first time in the UAE. The Biotechnology Program at the University of
Sharjah (UOS) is hosted by the Department of Applied Biology which was
established at the beginning of the academic year 2008/2009. It is the fifth
academic department of the College of Sciences. The decision to establish the
Department at UOS is one of the most important steps the University
has taken to keep up with the rapid advances in the life sciences, and to
prepare students for rewarding careers in the fields of biotechnology,
whether in industry, academia or government.
The Department Office is located in W8. The
current number of students enrolled in the biotechnology program is 350. The
projected number of enrolled student is promising as UOS is paying attention to
the rapid advances in the life sciences . The graduate students of the Program
also have the opportunity to join Masters Program offered at the Department of Applied Biology.
