Bioengineering is a branch of science that forms the basis of biotech industry and systems where engineering principles are applied including biology. The aim of the Bachelor of Science (MSc) in Genetics and Bioengineering with its original view, which combines genetic science and bioengineering practices; The aim of this course is to educate Gen Engineer and Bioengineer who have technical and basic knowledge in the field of genetics, bioengineering and biotechnology, who are responsible for their ethical and professional responsibilities and who take the leadership role in domestic or foreign academic, industrial and public institutions as the leading individuals who produce creative solutions and are pioneers in application.

In our Department of Genetics and Bioengineering, teaching and research activities are carried out in 5 practice and research laboratories with 5 classrooms at undergraduate and graduate level.

10 faculty members with very different educational backgrounds from basic sciences (chemistry, biology, microbiology) and engineering (bioengineering, chemical engineer) are working in the Department of Genetics and Bioengineering in Tokat Gaziosmanpasa University. 90% of our lecturers are very valuable scientists who have foreign experience and have completed their undergraduate and graduate education at various eminent universities of our country.

Our department accepts students with numerical points in university entrance exam. The students of the Department of Genetics and Bioengineering are trained in the fields of basic biology and chemistry as well as field courses and engineering courses.

In this context, the compulsory courses for four years;

Physical Chemistry, Basic Analytical Chemistry, Basic Organic Chemistry, Basic Biochemistry, General Mathematics, Differential Equations, Engineering Thermodynamics, Cytokiometry in Engineering, Numerical Analysis and Applications in Bioengineering, Biostatistics Applications in Bioengineering, Transport, Biotransport,

Within the framework of the Erasmus, students are exchanged with countries such as Poland, Portugal, Hungary, Belgium, and within the framework Farabi, student exchange programs are used in various universities such as Ege University and Yıldız Technical University. In addition to their minor and double major programs, they also have the qualifications in Mechatronics, Molecular Biology and Genetics and Food Engineering.

In addition, our students participate in Bioengineering Student Club activities and engage in social activities.

Our students who have completed the undergraduate program of Genetics and Bioengineering have been working in a wide range of industries ranging from food, agriculture and health to the environmental sector. In addition, biotechnological methods of food materials, beverages, energy sources (hydrogen, ethanol, biogas), drugs (antibiotics, vitamins, hormones) and biochemical substances (proteins and amino acids, enzymes, organic acids and solvents, pesticides and various polymers) biological systems they can take part in planning, research and application studies of compatible materials and R & D departments of plant-based enterprises.

Technology Transfer Office, Entrepreneurship and Corporate Unit and Tokat Teknopark A.Ş. in the incubation center, our students are supported with the necessary incentives to establish their own companies.
