Professional & Technical – Marine Biotechnology

Utilizing the applications of biotechnology with marine organisms is an emerging field. This curriculum exposes students to laboratory procedure, field sampling techniques, and the growing and culturing of marine organisms.  The culturing of marine organisms can lead to discovery of potential new pharmaceutical drugs, bioproducts, adhesives, fuel, cosmetics and natural products. Through this discovery process new products will be derived from these organisms creating an entirely new emerging sector within the biotechnology industry. Graduates of this program will qualify for entry level technician jobs in research and development, governmental agencies, or biomanufacturing industries.
