Education for undergraduates

The college currently provides two undergraduate specialties—Biotechnology and Bioscience, with more than 500 undergraduate students enrolled. In order to adopt advanced talent in medical science, the college also offers preparatory courses for more than 300 M.S. candidates from another five medical universities; there are over 740 graduate students are pursuing their M.S. or Ph.D. degrees in the college. Over the years, the annual undergraduate students in our college have been first-rate. Every year, 40% of the students receive scholarships,several classes and students have been awarded the honor outstanding national class, advanced collective and advanced individuals. Every year, more than 50% students are recommended for admission or enrolled by examination to graduate program, about 20% students go abroad for further education. Over the years college graduates employment rate is around 99%. College of Life Sciences have become the training base of high-level life science expertises.

The goal of the College of Life Sciences is to train students with high moral standards, intelligence, body, innovative spirit and questioning ability. Therefore, the college encourages students to possess high quality of innovative spirit and exploring ability by organizing and involving in various activities. A series of activities, such as the “Sports Festival of Nankai University” and “League Member School” have shown to be strikingly successful and reported many times by the media in Tianjin.

Biotechnology

In 2002, the College of Life Sciences was authorized as one of "National Training Base in Life Science and Technology". The college aimed at nurturing professionals of biotechnology industry, which can meet our country’s strategic readjustment of the economic structure and the agent requirements of development of the biotechnology industry. Biotechnology is the interdisciplinarity product of modern biology and its related subjects. Its core is based on DNA recombination technology, genetic engineering center, microbial engineering, biochemical engineering, cell engineering, biological products, and so on. The aim of the college was training highly qualified specialists with basic theory of modern biology and biotechnology, moreover, the students can obtain elementary training using basic research and exploitation of science and technology, they should possess favorabele science stuff, high consciousness of creation, and ablity of practice. The main courses are : general biology, genetic manipulation theory, microbial fermentation engineering, open experimental feature, biochemistry, cell biology, microbiology, genetics, molecular biology, general biology experiments, biochemical experiments, experimental cell biology, microbiology experiments, experimental genetics, molecular biology experiments. In 2004, the professional employment rate is 100%, in which the proportion of enrolled as graduate program is 65%, and the proportion of going abroad for further education is 15%.

Biological Science

Biological Science is an integrated course combining chemistry, biology and medicine, using the academic methods of modern chemistry and biology to process research on the structure, nature, function, metabolism, the control mechanisms of important substance (such as DNA, proteins, enzymes, carbohydrates, peptides, etc.) at the molecular level to reveal the essential phenomena of life. Through the teaching of Biological Science Series and training of laboratory skills, we culture the technical and managerial personnels with a solid biological science, related disciplines' theory, the realization of bioscience development, good knowledge about science and innovation capability. The main course are : plant biology and animal biology, biochemistry, cell biology, microbiology, genetics, molecular biology, plant biology experiments, animal biology experiments, biochemistry experiments, cell biology experiments, microbiology experiments, genetics experiments, molecular biology experiments. In 2004, the professional employment rate is 100%, in which the proportion of enrolled as graduate program is 65%, and the proportion of going abroad for further education is 15%.
