Learn how living organisms grow and develop, and how we can use this knowledge to create manufacturing processes, chemical products and life-saving drugs. Did you know that proteins, yogurt and biodiesel are all biotechnology products? So are insulin and the chickenpox vaccine, both of which have saved or improved the lives of millions.
The Biotechnology program covers the fields of biology, chemistry, mathematics, engineering science and engineering design. Students in this program receive two degrees upon graduation: a BSc in Biochemistry and a BASc in Chemical Engineering.
