PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES OF THE CURRICULUM

The majorities of the Thai people are involved in agriculture and related industries. Knowledge in biotechnology can be directly implied to the utilization of agricultural products to increase the value. Therefore it has a big impact on the living of most Thais. Biotechnology can provide agriculture with a variety of useful agents, from soil innoculents to veterinary products and possibly aqua-cultural and marine cultural products. Biotechnology implementation begins with the supplement of traditional genetic methods for the development of new or improved plant and animal strains for conventional agriculture. It also provides the food industry with bio-process and food ingredients like starter cultures and enzyme, which directly involved in food processing.

In the service industries biotechnology plays a major role in both aqueous and solid waste treatment, waste valorization and water purification.
