Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology

The Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology program combines practical and applied courses provided by the Bioscience Technology diploma program at Holland College with strong theoretical science courses at the University of Prince Edward Island. It is designed for students interested in obtaining a rigorous and broad training in biotechnology, such as gaining experience in research, laboratory procedures and safety, scientific ethics, and regulatory affairs, while increasing access to post-graduate opportunities (e.g., Master’s degree programs). Students are provided with foundational science courses as well as senior specialized courses in the life sciences at the university level to complement the strong hands-on technical training acquired during the college diploma program. On-the-job training is provided for all students.

There are two paths into this program. Students can start either at UPEI or Holland College (or a technologist program accredited by CTAB, as long as it has an OJT or co-op component), and end up with the same articulated degree. The technical lab-based content is covered at Holland College in the Bioscience Technology diploma program (or other CATB accredited technologist programs), either during the first two years of the degree (for students who start at College - Path 1) or in the third year (for students who start at UPEI – Path 2).

The calendar entry and program requirements will follow shortly.
