My journey with the Biotechnology department was very inspiring , I am so privileged to be a graduate from this amazing department, the faculty members are really well known in the science community . Apart from studying, I was very grateful that I was part of the Biotechnology Student's Scientific Society (BSSS) where we represented our department in many events related to academics and other fun activities, The courses offered in the Applied Biology department are diverse and most of the core courses have labs which helped us link between what we learn in theory and practice it in the lab ,which helped me alot in my post graduation career.
Rania Alshoura-Graduate student
My major was Biotechnology (Applied Biology) and I came to University of Sharjah not knowing what to expect, but once I got here and spent a semester or two, I felt that this University became my second home. The Department was so welcoming and helpful in getting me settled in. I consider the doctors in this department to be the best in the university, they are open to new ideas and help you in developing them. They support you and push you towards research and innovation. The labs were good and the lecturers prepared me really well. So when I went for my field training, I was already well prepared to work in the lab professionally. I graduated in four year and while I had my fair share of ups and downs, I had an amazing experience and the University prepared me very well for my professional life as well as personal.

My four years undergraduate studies were challenging and intense but incredibly rewarding and have exceeded all of my expectations…I am proud of my current position at the university as a lab supervisor and greatly enjoy all the people I work with. This is a great opportunity for me to learn new skills and to establish a career.
