Certificate in Biotechnology

Biotechnology is a broad interdisciplinary subject encompassing industries and fields involving some of the biggest challenges our society will face including medical & pharmaceutical technologies, agriculture, and the environment. It is founded on the knowledge at the intersection of chemistry and molecular biology, and is reliant on statistical modeling of "Big Data".  This certificate program is open to all students, but Biology, Chemistry, and Math majors with an interest in molecular biology are particularly encouraged to pursue it.
