The life-saving and groundbreaking innovations we use today like antibiotics, biofuels and biodegradable plastics are all thanks to a talented group of people who learned about biotechnology.
When you study a biotechnology degree at Swinburne, you’ll learn the fundamental processes behind living organisms, and how they can be used to create practical and commercial products and services.
In our biotech courses, we delve into the science behind the technology, including microbiology, statistics and more. We also teach you how to apply your knowledge in business, communication and analytical contexts.
