Career options

You might want to work towards a career in biology to help cure disease or create a new vaccine, but biotechnology is an exciting career that can see you combine two incredible industries.

A biotechnologist applies the practical use of biology, with technology to make advancements in cosmetics, agriculture, pharmaceuticals and other products. Your day to day tasks depends on what area you are in. You might be the person responsible for creating a new and more efficient crop, in which case, you might mutilate and manipulate the DNA of another so that it is fit for a new purpose.
