Quantitative Biosciences and Engineering

Bachelor’s Degree

The Quantitative Biosciences and Engineering bachelor’s degree is built for students interested in pre-med and a host of new and emerging biological fields. Uniquely designed to help students harness and respond to the data revolution, students will get quantitative training, not only in biology, chemistry and physics but also mathematics and computer science. Students will thereby be prepared for careers in the thriving biotechnology fields, with electives designed to support students with interests in pre-med, ecology systems and molecular biology. Graduates will stand out from general biology majors and graduate fully prepared to work in research and development, and applied technical laboratories, in most science and engineering fields—or to continue their studies in medical school or other advanced academic disciplines.
