Bachelor of Science (Honours) - Biotechnology (QS) at Queen’s University : Tuition Fee: $50,926.00 CAD / Year (Scholarship Available)
Biotechnology works with living organisms and other biological systems to help us improve our lives by discovering new drugs, improving crop production, and helping to develop novel forms of sustainable energy. First-year students at Queen’s will have the chance to focus their studies on this exciting and important discipline in a Biotechnology specialization.
Recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of Biotechnology, the program encourages students to take courses from several departments at Queen’s, everything from law to civil engineering to chemistry to biomechanical and molecular sciences. There is also an option to combine this degree with a diploma in Biotechnology from St. Lawrence College. The program has a strong emphasis on laboratory based learning during both the diploma and the degree portions of the program. Combined with the technical training of a college diploma, these students will graduate with a unique set of skills.
Note: Students in this program are also eligible for the Queen’s Undergraduate Internship Program (QUIP) which provides 2nd or 3rd year students with a 12-16 month work experience. The internship normally occurs following the student’s third year of study, after which the student completes the final year of the honours degree. The internships are paid, professionally supervised, career-related positions offering students the opportunity to learn about current advances, practices, and technologies in business and industry.
