About this Program

Biotechnology is the application of biological organisms, systems, and/or processes to learn about the science of life and the improvement of the value of materials and organisms such as pharmaceuticals, crops, and livestock. Biotechnology is a relatively new and fast-developing field that integrates knowledge from several traditional sciences: biochemistry, chemistry, microbiology, and chemical engineering. Graduates may work in labs for companies in the areas of pharmaceuticals, food processing, molecular biology, agricultural research, and product analysis.
