Programme Overview

The Life Sciences major provides strong interdisciplinary foundations to become a world-class specialist in the biological sciences and technologies. While pursuing the Life Sciences major, you will learn the fundamentals of modern biological sciences in its full interdisciplinary span alongside a comprehensive humanistic education focusing on a broad range of foundations that are essential for success in the modern world.


Biotechnology today is at the forefront of solving some of the greatest challenges facing humans from the rapid development of safer vaccines against previously unknown pathogens, to novel therapies for complex diseases like cancer, as well as significantly lengthening the human healthspan. Rapid molecular sequencing techniques and ever more powerful computing systems have revolutionised our understanding of the basic building blocks of life. Bioinformatics and computational biology are highly interdisciplinary fields, operating at the junction of multiple sciences and technologies. An understanding of the fundamental chemistry of biological systems is leading to the development of new drugs against difficult diseases. These quests are aided today by the development of advanced algorithms, high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics. Exposure to these fields is an integral part of the programme at Atria.


Sustainability will be one of the cornerstones of human existence in the twenty-first century, given increasing disruptions in climate and the destruction of the environment. A strong focus on ecology, plant biology and food systems within the life science programme provides the foundations for a career in sustainability to students. You will study a range of topics from the science of plants and sustainable agriculture focusing on areas such as plant breeding and genetics, plant metabolites and medicinal pharmacology. These ideas integrate with the broader area of industrial biotechnology where the production and scaling up of important biomolecules are studied in the context of the production systems, such as bioreactors and large scale purification systems, presently in use in the biotechnology industry.


The Life Science programme at Atria University gives a grounding in the above domains combining theory and practice, introducing advanced concepts and techniques at an early age through project based learning (PBL). The core Life Sciences training at Atria University will open opportunities for research, development and entrepreneurship , within industry and academia. Students further have the option of obtaining significant exposure to the Life Sciences while part of the BBA and BDes programs where they interconnect understanding of business and design fields with that of the biotechnology industry.
