겐트대학교는 11개 단과대학에 125개 학과를 갖춘 종합 국립대학으로, 특히 바이오와 화학 분야에서 세계적인 인재를 배출해 왔습니다. 한국의 글로벌 캠퍼스에서는 분자생명공학, 식량과학, 환경과학의 3가지 전공을 운영하며, 벨기에와 동일한 학위를 수여하고 있습니다. 신입생들은 2년간 동일한 전공 기초 과정을 이수하며, 3학년 진입 시에 제한 없이 원하는 전공을 선택할 수 있습니다.

Ghent University Global Campus offers three 4-year Bachelor's programs. The granted degrees are Ghent University degrees. All programs are accredited both in Flanders and Korea. The courses in the first two years are the same for all three programs, with subjects such as Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Informatics, and Mathematics, as well as general subjects including English, alongside Major teaser courses. This is followed by two years of specialization in one of the three majors.
Environmental Technology
The Environmental Technology program studies the processes in water, air and soil, and the influence of human activities on these processes. Students acquire the technical knowledge to recognize and prevent environmental risks and to find solutions to specific problems. Completion of this program will open a broad range of career options: research and development in research institutions and international companies, policy-making positions in local, regional and national governments, technological and management positions in small and medium-sized businesses and foreign companies, conducting studies at consultancies, and many other leadership positions.

Career Fields : Graduate school, Research & Development, Environmental engineering, Environmental management, Environmental consultation, Environmental education
Food Technology
The Food Technology program teaches everything about the chemical and physicochemical, microbiological, nutritional and technological aspects of foods. Students study the processes that occur in raw materials and during the production processes, the preservation and the preparation of foods. Students learn how the quality of foods can influence consumer health and how to control the safety and quality of foods. After completion of the program, graduates will be able to solve problems anywhere in the food chain, and will have career options in, for example, the food industry, the pharmaceutical and biomedical sector, or in government or research institutions.

Career Fields : Graduate school, Research & Development, Food safety & Inspection, Sales & Marketing, Quality assurance management, Procurement & Purchasing management
Molecular Biotechnology
The Molecular Biotechnology program gives students  scientific background and skills concerning living organisms and a command of engineering techniques combined with aspects of economics and business management. Students will be able to contribute to the elucidation of disease mechanisms and translate knowledge to engineering approaches in which living cells or organisms are used for the production of fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals or biofuels. Students will be able to develop new bio-molecular products and production processes and control and manage their quality.
The program also offers excellent preparation for students to proceed to an MSc in this research field.

Career Fields : Graduate school, Research & Development, Sales & Marketing, Quality assurance management, Education, Pharmaceutical & Medical professionals
