Using modern lab facilities, FVCC biotechnology students participate in research projects related to wildlife biology and agriculture. This hands-on research experience has helped several FVCC students obtain research positions while pursuing a bachelors degree at a four-year institution. Biotechnology is a great match for students holding B.S. or B.A. degrees who are interested in updating their skills, changing careers or preparing to enter graduate school.
