Biotechnology is the technologies applied to biology, molecular biology, genetics, and many other subfields of biology. Biotechnology utilizes cellular and biomolecular processes to create technologies and products that help improve our lives and the nature. Recently, the field of biotechnology has developed breakthrough products and technologies to fight diseases, reduce our environmental harm, feed the hungry, use less and cleaner energy, and have safer, cleaner and more efficient industrial manufacturing processes. So far, more than 250 biotechnology health care products and vaccines have been made available to patients, many for previously untreatable diseases. More than 13.3 million farmers around the world use agricultural biotechnology to increase yields, prevent damage from insects and pests and reduce damage done on environment due to farming. And more than 50 biorefineries are being built across North America alone to test and refine technologies to produce biofuels and chemicals from renewable biomass, which can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Students graduating in any biotechnology programme could look forward to both higher education and job opportunities broadly in the areas of healthcare, agriculture and energy.
