The Biotechnology programme is applicable for exchange students who are interested in learning how to make use of living organisms to create products and services. INN University has a close collaboration with the industry, offering students an opportunity to work on projects addressing the demands of our collaborating companies.
Biotechnology revolves around the use of living organisms – plant cells, animal cells and microorganisms – and biomolecules from these, for the creation of new products and services. Biotechnology provides solutions for a future bioeconomy based on sustainability with respect to food production, health, and the environment.
The Hamar region constitutes an agroindustrial hub, including major animal and plant breeding companies, high-tech spin-off enterprises and chief companies in the food and feed industries. The biotech group at Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences collaborates closely with industry, and an essential part of our biotechnology research stems from relevant industrial strategies and problems.
Only students from our partner institutions are admitted to this Exchange programme, and nomination from your home institution is required.
B2 level of English language is required/strongly recommended in addition to completed course exams comprising at least 60 ECTS credits in mathematics and natural sciences, including a foundation in chemistry and biology.
