Biotechnology studies begins on the Albacete Campus
11/10/2018
The Biotechnology Degree has been set in motion on the Albacete Campus for around thirty students. The chancellor of the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), Miguel Ángel Collado, welcomed the students along with the minister for Agriculture, the Environment and Rural Development, Francisco Martínez.

The assembly hall of the Higher Technical School of Agricultural and Forestry Engineering (ETSIAM) of Albacete has been the venue for this presentation ceremony for the Biotechnology degree, which almost thirty students have begun, since as this is the first year it is running, it has been linked to the Food and Agricultural and Engineering degree, and next year there will be 1st and 2nd year programmes for this degree.

This new degree, in the chancellor´s words, shows the commitment of the regional university, thanks to the agreement with the government of Castilla-La Mancha, which has seen the importance of the degree in Agricultural engineering "with significant student demand, and with this degree the UCLM educational programme has been broadened as well as the professional training needed for the development of our region", said Miguel Ángel Collado, who congratulated the School and the Vice-chancellor for setting the degree in motion, thanking the regional government once again for their work together with the academic institution.

In this respect, the minister stated that supporting training for young people is highly crucial, especially in such important branches of knowledge for the Castilla-La Mancha economy, such as biotechnology, "which is going to help the food and agriculture industry, forestry and health sciences".

Also present at the ceremony were the general director of universities, Ricardo Cuevas; the Vice-chancellor for Transference and Innovation, Ángela González, and the director of the School, Rodolfo Bernabéu, who explained that at present a total of 50 students have enrolled on the Food and Agricultural Engineering degree, out of which 27 have shown their desire to continue next year with Biotechnology studies, since this year there are subjects common to both, so he stated that in 2019-2020 first and second year courses will be in the programme for this degree.
