Alumni by Graduating Class:
The M.S. in Biotechnology offers a powerful two-year curriculum for working professionals that integrates science, business and law.
Rather than stringing together preexisting departmental courses, this novel curriculum has been custom designed and continuously refined since 2002 to fulfill the program's mission of preparing students to lead the development and commercialization of emerging biotechnologies.
Courses are team taught by a combination of university experts and private industry leaders, providing a unique blend of theoretical and functional knowledge that students can apply immediately to their careers.
