Penn Advantage

In 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 Resources
Location in a Strong Biotechnology Sector
Flexibility for Part-time and Full-time Students
