Department of Biotechnology is established in 2003. As a brand new department at NationalFormosaUniversity, we are full with ambition and promising in the future. Our goal is to provide the students the best education on both practical skills of biotechnology and professional knowledge of life science. We impart to students to well prepare themselves for employment in the industry of biotechnology, and other related fields. The faculty also put much effort on research work. Our research teamwork project and individual research plans integrate the industry demand and academic research.
NationalFormosaUniversity is located in the center of Yunlin, a big agricultural county with 68% of farmland in its total area. Yunlin has many kinds of agriculture products in different seasons.
