Research Experience in the Biotechnology Major:
A research experience is an important component of the interdisciplinary biotechnology degree program. Students have opportunities to pursue research projects and gain experience working with state-of-the-art instrumentation under the guidance of members of the faculty. This experience is invaluable in the intellectual development of a student and in their subsequent search for technical positions in industrial, medical or government and university research laboratories.
Students who are members of the Honors College perform undergraduate research and prepare and defend an honors thesis. Students may also gain firsthand experience of working in biotechnology through an internship experience in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical industries.
