the fall of 1997, the School of Engineering and Applied Science
(SEAS) and School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) created a new professional master's program in the emerging
field of biotechnology. This program springs from the University of
Pennsylvania's long history as an innovator in education.
Using Penn's well-established tradition of interdisciplinary teaching
and the unmatched breadth of its faculty, the Biotechnology Program
draws its strengths from Penn's biology, biochemistry, chemical
engineering, bioengineering and computer and information science
departments. This cross-disciplinary approach gives students a uniquely
broad exposure to the entire field of biotechnology.
Penn is specially qualified and situated to lead biotechnology
education, with its:
Curriculum Breadth and Versatility
Wealth of On-Campus Biotechnology
Location in a Strong Biotechnology
Flexibility for Part-time and Full-time
