Why Biotechnology & Life Sciences?
The 21st century is said to belong to Biotechnology and the Life Sciences, just as the 20th century belonged to Information Technology. Global revenue of biotechnology and life sciences products have been progressively increasing from US$ 23 billion in 2000 to US$ 50 billion in 2005 to US$ 89.7 billion in 2008. It is predicted that by 2015, about 5,000 biotechnology firms will make over US$ 1 trillion. Malaysia’s drive to set up a biotechnology and life sciences industry gained substantial momentum under the 9th Malaysia Plan, allocating RM 2.02 billion (compared to RM 574.4 million under the 8th Malaysia Plan), and instituting several measures, among which are the creation of the Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation as the driver of the industry; the National Biotechnology Policy comprising three phases of development; and granting of BioNexus status to biotechnology companies. The number of biotechnology companies granted the BioNexus status have increased from initially 7 in 2006 to 42 in 2007, 92 in 2008 and to 104 as of May 2009. In 2008, investments totalled RM 1.3 billion and revenue generated was RM 378.6 million, which is projected to increase to RM 45 billion by 2013. With the increasingly promising outlook in Malaysia and elsewhere, biotechnology and life sciences graduates will be in demand in the years to come.

INTI Alumni

What they have to say

“I had a great time at INTI University College during my one and a half years there. My favourite classes under the Australian Degree Transfer Programme (Science) were Microbiology and Chemistry. The best part of the programme, though, is undoubtedly the laboratory sessions. I can still remember vividly streaking plates, performing Gram stains, making chemical reactions and dissecting a mouse!!! The programme also gave me a great opportunity to travel overseas, complete my studies and further broaden my perception of the world. It has been 4 years since I first enrolled in INTI and even though I’ve graduated, I will never forget how much fun I had there.” Soo Mei Ling Pursued a degree in BSc (Biomedical Science) (Hons), and graduated with First Class Honours in 2008 from The University of Adelaide, Australia. Currently she is working as a Patient Relations Officer in Heartscan International, Bangsar (owned by Mahameru International Medical Centre Sdn Bhd).

“I enjoyed the laboratory sessions particularly the ones in Molecular and Cell Biology 2. The lecturer was patient in explaining every aspect of the experiments. Other laboratory sessions I enjoyed were in the field of Microbiology. Playing with different bacterial cultures and carrying out various tests just made the class very much interesting. The best part of the Australian Degree Transfer Programme (Science) is that it provides options to students to further their studies in various universities in Australia and the United Kingdom.” Choo Foong Lin Pursued a degree in BSc (Biotechnology) (Hons), and graduated with First Class Honours in 2009 from The University of New South Wales, Australia. He is the recipient of the University of New South Wales Golden Jubilee Scholarship 2007 covering full-tuition fee waiver for two years worth a total of AUD 45,120 (at 2007 fees).

“The Australian Degree Transfer Programme (Science) was indeed a great beginning for my university experience. The courses under the degree transfer programme were fun and challenging! With the aid of professional and dedicated lecturers, new things can be easily learnt. This programme also provided me a great opportunity to further my studies at The University of New South Wales. I certainly enjoyed the Biology of Organisms and Molecular Cell Biology courses. The lessons were very interesting. Apart from that, the lectures cultivated my interest in biological sciences.” Lee Aijia Currently completing a degree in BSc (Food Science) at The University of New South Wales, Australia, she is the recipient of the University of New South Wales Golden Jubilee Scholarship 2008 covering full-tuition fee waiver for two years worth a total of AUD 49,920 (at 2008 fees).

“I really cherish the time in INTI, where we were given substantial laboratory practical training and elemental teaching of the life sciences core subjects. I still remember my UK lecturers were quite amazed with us INTI students, as we actually out-performed the local students in several classes, especially in genetics. We were able to answer all the questions spot on. Last but not least, all the DSCAU lecturers were very helpful and the structure of the programme is very well organised too.” Alvin Teo Chen Kuang Pursued a degree in BSc (Hons) in Biotechnology, and graduated with First Class Honours in 2008 from Northumbria University, United Kingdom. He is the recipient of Avecia Biotechnology Prize for Best Performance in Biotechnology (graduating class of 2008), University of Northumbria, UK.
