Biotechnology SSP

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.


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 @ Faculty of Arts & Science Calendar.
