The four year Biotechnology (BTEC) degree plan is a Subject of Specialization Plan (SSP) with a focus on this highly active and rapidly changing area of applied research. The plan balances conceptual and practical learning experiences at a broad range of scales of biological organization — from microbes to ecosystems — embracing the diversity of life forms that can be used to improve agriculture, medicine and the environment, among other things. Accordingly, the BTEC SSP reaches out to other units at Queen’s such as Chemical Engineering, to incorporate campus-wide expertise in this multidisciplinary field.
Overview The BTECH-P-BSH plan, with sufficient electives to total 120.0 units, will lead to a Bachelor of Science Honours Degree. The full calendar description can be found here or under BTEC in the Faculty of Arts & Science Calendar.
New combined Degree and Diploma Program in Biotechnology
Want to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet? A new joint program with St. Lawrence College and Queen's University combines a degree and diploma in Biotechnology. The new interdisciplinary program with a strong emphasis on laboratory based learning will combine the applied training of a college diploma and the research acuteness of a university degree - ensuring that students graduate not only with both a degree and a diploma but a unique set of skills and hands-on experience.
