Teaching and Learning Features
This programme aims at providing students an interesting and stimulating learning experience via various teaching-learning techniques and assessment strategies.  Besides theoretical knowledge, it is important for Master students to demonstrate an ability to operate and maintain scientific equipment, to have good practical skills to conduct basic guided research and laboratory work and also to analyze, synthesize and integrate knowledge and information. Needing to conduct extensive relevant laboratory practicals in the subjects as well as to undertake an intensive research project, our Master's students will be required to design and conduct research/survey in the area of Biotechnology to propose a way to bring the final product into the market. This involves them writing a business proposal at the end of the project, which includes budgeting, expenditure estimations, capital investments, profits and losses, and sales and market demands. Consequently, they get to understand their research objectives, the timeline and time management of their studies, and major project milestones. Successful completion of the research project is the key factor in accomplishing this degree.

Assessment is also an integral part of their learning process. Depending on their subjects, some students would have a formal summative assessment, while most of them would be assessed continuously throughout the course. This continuous assessment in the form of assignments would require them to be self-directed to learn through oral presentations, written reports, case studies, critical analysis on published scientific data, mini projects (individual or team), seminars and class discussions. Through various learning instructional media and technologies, students get to learn to identify to take advantage of the unique opportunities and challenges inherent in the assignments that broaden their knowledge while inculcating life-long learning. Amongst the most applicable techniques helping students to envision real-world Biotechnology challenges to apply theories learnt throughout their studies are critical analysis of case studies and data interpretation exercises. In addition, students also acquire the relevant communication, leadership and team-work skills necessary to pursue their career.
