Biotechnology


The B.S. Biotechnology program aims to prepare students for a career in the broad field of biotechnology. As biotech encompasses molecular research, genomics, forensics, bioinformatics (biocomputing) and environmental bioremediation, as well as administration, management, patent law and other 'business' areas, graduates will be positioned to compete for a wide range of positions. Moreover, graduates will receive the foundation for application to and success in graduate, professional (e.g. Med, Vet), law or business school.

Specific goals of the program are to prepare students not only with professional training (technical skills), but also to provide students with the ability to critically evaluate biotechnology advances and applications. We now live in a molecular society, in the post-genomic era, with scientific breakthroughs that affect us all. B.S. Biotech graduates will make a difference in how society uses such advances.

Undergraduates (either first/second year students or transfers) can elect for a 5-year B.S. to M.S. Biotechnology curriculum.
