Biotechnology is a rapidly expanding field of academic research and industry. Biotechnology industries are developing new approaches to treating diseases, finding new pharmaceutical agents, developing renewable energy sources, and improving food production. Students who are interested in entering this field will find many challenging career opportunities and the potential to develop new products aimed at solving some of society’s urgent problems. To prepare for careers in Biotechnology students need to have a foundation in biology, microbiology, chemistry, and mathematics.
