Genetics and Bioengineering is one of the fastest growing disciplines and employment opportunities in this newly emerging field are also blooming worldwide, parallel to the field’s high advancement rate.

In this context, there is an increasing need for geneticists and bioengineers shaped with contemporary engineering standards in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Genetics and Bioengineering department will train open-minded geneticists and bioengineers with robust professional formation, who are conscious about social responsibility, aware of local and global problems, and sensitive about ethical issues. Genetics and Bioengineering undergraduate program aims the development of new technologies using biological systems and processes. For this reason, the students will learn how to investigate biological mechanisms and circumstances from the point of engineering view by understanding basic principles of genetics and molecular biology.

The goals of Genetics and Bioengineering education are the following:

  • To give successful education about basic life sciences
  • To give knowledge and experience in area of Genetics, Molecular biology and Bioengineering
  • To conduct basic and experimental high quality researches and to apply engineering and physical sciences to medical and biological problems.
  • To prepare a ground for the students so that they can learn how to apply engineering technologies to living systems in a safe way.
  • To give problem solving and team forming abilities which are necessary for genetics and bioengineering carrier.
  • To develop effective communication abilities and joining into interdisciplinary teams. To give education to the students in a broad spectrum and their preparation for carrier in a wide range.

Employment Opportunities

Those who have graduated have a wide range of jobs that they can seek for, depending on individual interests. Some of the options are: continuing their academic careers; or a career in various industrial fields (pharmaceutical, biotechnological, agricultural or similar); then, a career in the field of scientific research in biomedicine, whether in clinical or forensic field; as well as employment in various governmental and non-governmental institutions at the national and international level.

The medium of education is English.
