Biotechnology—creating technology or products from cellular and biomolecular processes, often DNA technology—is one of the fastest-growing and innovative scientific sectors.

You will learn about the use of biotechnology in areas such as health care, veterinary medicine, agriculture, and the environment.

Our students study the science behind breakthrough discoveries that revolutionized gene editing, stem cell research, green energy, and big data in personalized medicine. Our students learn in the classroom and lab, as well as in a chosen field alongside biotechnology experts. Our students gain the knowledge, expertise, ethical framework, and contacts necessary to achieve a successful career in the life sciences.
