Canada is developing a global reputation for its Biotechnology industry. And BC – specifically the Lower Mainland – has emerged as a heartland for fast-growing enterprises. There is now close to 100 respected biotechnological companies in this region alone.
A degree in biotechnology equips students with the knowledge, experience, ethical expertise, and contacts required to forge their way into this exciting and innovative field. Biotechnology students have the opportunity to not only study science and business courses in the classroom but also can do research alongside biotechnology experts. What’s more, students can access to our new biology and analytical chemistry laboratories, our confocal microscopy suite and our on-campus Ecosystem Study Area and participate in internships and co-op placements. Together these combined opportunities give students marketable skills and an employment advantage.
However, what really sets this program apart is our faith and the values it promotes. Crucially, this degree approaches ethical concerns from both a scientific and Christian perspective, allowing students to contribute reasoned and ethical interpretations to the discourse of the biotechnological marketplace.
