Goals and Objectives
The main goal of the Biotechnology, M.S. program is to advance students’ knowledge and experience beyond the BS level and equip them for the rapidly evolving, life-sciences-based industries. The program provides students with a broad and comprehensive coverage of established and emerging bio-technologies. Course topics range from industrial application of enzymes and bio-polymer synthesis to the modern drug design and the role of biotechnology in health care. The availability of many elective courses enables students to specialize further in selected biotechnology areas. The program includes a guided study to develop analytical skills. The students are trained to perform at the entry-/mid-managerial level in life-sciences-based industries and other organizations involved in biotechnology-related work.
