Bioveterinary science is dedicated to the investigation of life processes and exploring the inter-relationships of living organisms. This may involve studies at a variety of levels from molecules to populations. Bioveterinary science is divided into many specialisms such as biology, biological sciences life sciences and animal sciences. This degree emphasizes specific technologies, interactions and/or systems (e.g. animal behaviour, biochemistry, biotechnology), or the environments that living organisms inhabit (e.g. ecology, environmental biology).
This Bioveterinary Science degree programme at AIT was the first of its kind in Ireland. It is a multi-disciplinary degree in science which allows the graduate access to a wide range of career options. All of this is designed to produce bioveterinary scientists who play an important part in the nationwide promotion of animal and human health and welfare. Bioveterinary scientists may progress to hold positions in the Pharmaceutical, Agricultural, and Medical research sectors.
