Our faculty worked with life sciences industry representatives to design a modern, state-of-the-art curriculum that is highly valued by the life sciences industry.
We work closely with chief scientific officers and human resource personnel from several corporations to ensure our program prepares students for the exciting field of biotechnology. Executives from industry are also members of an oversight committee for both the graduate and undergraduate programs.
We frequently invite industrial scientists and executives to present seminars in the Biotechnology Seminar Series where they can interact with students. The inclusion of industrial representatives ensures that the curriculum provides a graduating class that meets the needs and expectations of employers. An advisory board consisting of leaders from various biotech industries provide input on the curriculum as well as serve as contacts for internships and other opportunities for our students.
