Marine Biotechnology plays a pivotal role in solving problems of the health, food and environment. It also aids in the effective use of living marine resources by giving a chemical understanding of life phenomena at the molecular and cellular levels. Hence the field has established itself as a key contributor to biology-related industries such as food, materials, and pharmaceuticals. It is also essential to ocean farming, which is the next generation of the fisheries industry. The division aims to meet the demands of the field by giving training that incorporates the basics of the bio-tech industries including microbiology, food science, and natural organic materials. Training stresses the development of on-site troubleshooting capability and mastering the governing theories of key technologies.
