Overview

Biotechnology – Advanced program will prepare you with the scientific principles, techniques and skills required in industrial microbiology and chemistry. In this applied science program, you’ll also study biotechnology applications, biochemistry, microbial genetics, and clinical and environmental microbiology.

Your Biotechnology – Advanced courses will teach you to:

  • Isolate, enumerate and identify microorganisms from many types of samples;
  • Accurately calibrate and use instruments such as pH and BOD meters, gas chromatographs, spectrophotometers, HPLCs, centrifuges, PCR thermocyclers and gel electrophoresis equipment;
  • Prepare media and reagents to culture pathogenic microbes;
  • Design and perform advanced microbiology and microbial genetics experiments;
  • Isolate DNA and perform gel electrophoresis and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) on samples.

Co-op Option

The co-op option will allow you to gain hands-on experience while you complete three co-op work terms as an employee in the field. This experience not only allows you to put classroom learning into practice but will also provide valuable contacts for your future career.

To participate in this co-op option, you must complete an application process in the second semester. If academically qualified, you may be admitted to the co-op program.

When you graduate, your diploma will highlight the co-op credential.
