The Genetics and Bioengineering programme at Izmir University of Economics is designed to integrate medical engineering perspective with sciences and to include academic and research programs that focus on applying engineering principles to medical problems and biological systems.
For this purpose, Izmir University of Economics Genetics and Bioengineering Program aims to both build a strong basis in basic sciences such as biology, mathematics and chemistry and, at the same time, to equip students with engineering skills such as design, measurement and modeling.
During the first 2 years of the program, students take classes in basic sciences like mathematics, physics, chemistry and molecular biology. Starting at the third year, genetics and bioengineering core courses emphasize the use of theoretical knowledge in laboratory and application. Thus, design of new technologies regarding biological systems and processes, and their development for application in areas like medicine, agriculture, environment and food are among the main objectives of this program.
With its internationally trained academic staff, Izmir University of Economics Genetics and Bioengineering Program provides students with an education that will transform basic research into industrial knowledge.
Graduates from this department could be employed as application specialists in hospitals as well as within R&D departments of drug development and biotechnology companies. Some bioengineers work within the marketing and sales arms of similar companies.
Biotechnology and drug development are among the most invested disciplines both in our country and in the world. Moreover, multidisciplinary skills and analytical experiences of bioengineers are also well recognised and this gives them an opportunity to be able to work in prestigious positions in business consulting.

This programme may require students to demonstrate proficiency in English.
