Seattle is proud to be celebrating the launch of the Master of Science in Biotechnology degree program at our Campus. The event will feature remarks by Dr. Jim Leung, Academic Director of Biotechnology programs, and by the Washington Biotechnology & Biomedical Association (WBBA).
The MS in Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary degree offered through a collaboration of Northeastern’s College of Science and Bouvé College of Health Sciences, combining advanced training in biology, chemistry, chemical engineering, and pharmaceutical science with the development of high-value business skills critical to success in the today’s dynamic workplace. As a non-thesis professional degree, students leverage hands-on, project-driven lab experience and independent opportunities to integrate classroom study with practical professional experience.
The event will feature a combination of prospective students and members of the life sciences fields to help welcome this exciting degree to the region. Seattle is a hub for life sciences with companies such as The Institute for Systems Biology, Amgen, Novo Nordisk, and many more.
Much of the industry in region came out to the WBBA’s Life Science Northwest Conference that Northeastern sponsored in June.
