The curriculum includes 15 credit hours of approved laboratory work in molecular biology/genomics, cell biology, and proteins and proteomics. The program is designed for the continuing education of research technicians with baccalaureate degrees who work in academic and industrial laboratories, new college graduates who want to enhance their knowledge and undergraduates who are interested in developing skills in the latest biotechnology techniques.
Students who successfully complete the requirements for either of the three above models will be considered Biology majors. A grade of “C” or better is required in all courses of the major group. The major group includes all required science and mathematics courses, and this definition is applicable to all students who enrolled in the Department beginning in the Fall Semester of 1989 and thereafter.
To be eligible for admission to the Biotechnology Certificate Program a student must complete the following:
- Apply for admission to the Biotechnology Program.
- Have completed all pre-requisite course work for courses related in the program.
- Have an overall cumulative grade point average of 2.8 on a 4.0 scale.
