Bachelor Studies in GBE


The Genetics and Bioengineering degree program at IUS is geared to developing an integrated scientific perspective comprising the fundamentals of molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics and cell biology, all of which are built upon a solid background in mathematics, physics and chemistry.


Courses on the exploitation of biological systems for developing new technologies and industrial applications reflect the biotechnology dimension of the program. The Bioengineering dimension is based on an understanding of engineering concepts and techniques.

Overview of the BSc Program

Overview of the BSc Program

The Bachelor of Science in GBE at IUS is a four-year, eight-semester program of 240 European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), broken down into about 30 ECTS per semester. 

Earning a Bachelor’s degree is one of the most important steps you can take towards increasing your earning potential and job opportunities.

Bioengineering, one of the youngest engineering disciplines, employs the principles and tools of traditional engineering specialties that are applied to solve biomedical problems. Bioengineering is broad in its spectrum, with its foundation in all of the engineering sciences, as well as biomedical sciences. In recognition of the unique features and requirements of bioengineering, IUS established the Bioengineering Program in 2004.

The undergraduate Genetics and Bioengineering program at IUS is designed to emphasize the application of the principles and methods of engineering sciences to the study of biomedical applications and problems. The curriculum has an engineering foundation with emphasis on biochemical process applications. The four-year Genetics and Bioengineering curriculum prepares students for careers in the emerging biotechnology industry or in businesses related to medical or pharmaceutical industry, as well as other positions in industry, commerce and education; or to continue their formal education at a graduate school of their choice.

The curriculum is divided into four components. The largest component, that of the basic sciences, dominates the first two years of the study. It includes mathematics, physics, biology and chemistry, through biochemistry, computer technology, and is capped with life science courses. The Bioengineering component begins in the second term sophomore year; it provides an approach employing the engineering background to problems deriving from biomedical sciences. The third component is the level where students develop depth in the area of bioengineering. This includes molecular biology, techniques in molecular biology, genetics and related methods, structural biology, microbiology and bioinformatics. The fourth component comprises the general biotechnology, genetics and molecular biology education and free elective courses that give balance to a student's education.


Candidates who are citizens of foreign countries can submit preliminary application for admission before the official call is published by the University, so that they can obtain necessary residency permits and satisfy language requirements prior to the start of lectures at the University.
