From The Dean's Desk

Peace be upon you and please to meet you

Alhamdulillah, thanks to Allah Almighty for all His favors. Greet to our Prophet Muhammad SAW.

Welcome to the Faculty of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences website. I hope that this website will be an important medium in spreading information about the Faculty to the public and the masses towards making the Faculty of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences a key choice in the dissemination of knowledge and skills that contribute to the advancement in biotechnology in Malaysia and the international stage.

For all information, the Faculty or known as BioTech UPM was established on 1 August 2004 which combines two departments namely the Department of Biotechnology at the Faculty of Food Science and Biotechnology and the Biochemistry and Microbiology Department at the Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies. With the formation of BioTech UPM, all activities involving biotechnology at UPM can be coordinated under one administration. Since its inception, BioTech UPM consists of four departments namely Bioprocess Technology Department, Cell and Molecular Biology Department, Biochemistry Department and Microbiology Department

BioTech UPM is constantly working on completing trust in educating students. The success of educating this generation of students also depends on the ability of the Faculty to provide competent instructors through academic research, consultation and writing activities. In further strengthening these activities, the Faculty has always encouraged and supported any self-pursuit efforts by its academic staff as well as collaborating with local and foreign universities.

Finally, with the existence of this website, it is hoped that it will be able to provide benefits and information to faculty, university, students, visitors especially to the general public and the public.

Thank you


Prof. Dr. Arbakariya Ariff
