Description

Biotechnologists design products and processes, medical scientists treat disease and environmental scientists manage the environment. All bioscientists need to interact with the community. Research must be ethical and relevant to the community's needs. Products and processes must comply with regulations and laws, and must be safe. Bioscientists communicate with peers and the general public, and maintain their knowledge and skills. All bioactivities must be financially sustainable either as a result of government (public) funding or profit.

In this subject, students learn how biotechnology is managed as a business entity. They learn quality control techniques, quality management systems (ISO, GMP, etc.), failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), legislation, intellectual property, and the financing, establishment and management of biotechnology companies. Students also learn techniques to communicate with peers and maintain their scientific skills so they are ready for whatever the future holds.
