Three Policies of School of Bioscience and Biotechnology
Admission Policy at School of Bioscience and Biotechnology
The School of Bioscience and Biotechnology considers for admission those who apply themselves, with strong interest and eagerness, to the study and research in natural sciences, particularly bioscience and biotechnology, and aspire to realize their dreams through personal growth, especially those who desire to become creative educated individuals with a sense of humanity and an awareness of ethics and are motivated to pursue a career in medical and health care, food stuff, cosmetics, or environment-related fields of industry, thereby contributing to the realization of a sustainable society.
Curriculum Policy at School of Bioscience and Biotechnology
To fulfill TUT’s fundamental mission “To build up human resources that will contribute to the improvements in the quality of life and to the progress of technology,” the School of Bioscience and Biotechnology sets forth the following curriculum policy, aiming to educate students to become internationally minded, educated individuals equipped not only with a sense of humanity and an awareness of ethics but also with creativity and professional ability in bioscience and biotechnology to contribute to the construction of a sustainable society:
- 1. Liberal Arts
To foster an international mindset, a sense of humanity, an awareness of ethics, and high creativity, the Liberal Arts subject group is composed of four subgroups of subjects: (a) humanity and social sciences, (b) foreign languages, (c) informatics (computers), mathematics, and other natural sciences, and (d) character building subjects (good citizenship, wellness).
- 2. Specialized Subjects
(a) Basic Specialized and Common Subject Groups
These are designed to give students a solid foundation for studying basic and practical subjects common to all specialized fields at the School of Bioscience and Biotechnology, focusing on fundamental knowledge and skills. They are offered as required, required elective, or elective subjects.
(b) Specialized Subject Group
These are designed to put students through knowledge and skills in bioscience and biotechnology and then to foster the ability to solve field problems or create new values by systematically applying such knowledge and skills.
They include, as required subjects, a variety of experiments in bioscience and bio-technology, especially food stuff, cosmetics, and environment-related fields, so as to nurture the ability for practical application.
They further include a graduate project as a required subject, so as to nurture the ability to put to practice what they have learned during the four-year period and ultimately solve real-life problems.
Diploma Policy at School of Bioscience and Biotechnology
The requirements for qualifying for a diploma are, first, to enroll for a pre-specified period of time in the School of Bioscience and Biotechnology, second, to earn a minimum of 124 credits by completing subjects (liberal arts, basic specialized, and specialized) that are designed to equip students with scientific and engineering knowledge and skills in bioscience, and finally to pass the graduation exam for a bachelor. The subjects mentioned herein include not only lectures but also a graduation paper as well as exercises, lecture-accompanied experiments, and specialized experiments that are specified by the School.
The criteria for passing the graduation exam for a bachelor are that the student has adequately mastered both liberal arts subjects, which are offered across all the schools of TUT, and specialized subjects, which are specifically designed by the School and whether the student is possessed of communication skills, logical thinking ability, an analytic mindset, evaluation skills, and problem solution skills.
