The biology and biotechnology program at Endicott offers students a progressive education comprised of cutting-edge technical training within a comprehensive curriculum framework. Bio/biotech lecture and laboratory courses combine modern biology and chemistry with an emphasis on high technology. The curriculum is designed to provide the knowledge and the methodological skills needed for success in this important and broad field.
Biotechnology is considered by many to be the third technological revolution. Like the industrial revolution and the revolution in information technology, biotechnology is expected to change the world. Discoveries and applications in the field contribute to health and medicine, food and nutrition, energy solutions, nanotechnology, environmental cleanup and management, biological warfare preparedness, forensics, agriculture, and more.
Graduates of the program will find exciting career opportunities in the rapidly expanding biotech and pharmaceutical industries. Students may choose to participate in the Pre-Medical/Pre-Health Professional Program that will prepare them with the prerequisites for post graduate studies in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or other health professional programs. Please see the “Special Programs” section of the catalog for further information.
