B.S. in Biotechnology Engineering

Science provides solutions

Biotechnology is one of the most transcendent and important scientific fields, since it focuses on the application of technology in processes that use biological systems to create innovative solutions in a wide range of sectors, such as pharmaceuticals, food, healthcare, agriculture, environment, energy, among others. As a Biotechnology Engineer, you will be able to create or modify biotechnological products, services and processes that address the needs of all these sectors, focusing constantly on human and environmental wellbeing.
especialidad

Career field

On graduating, you will be able to work in diverse areas, such as:

  • Innovation and development of biotechnological products and processes in the pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries, and the agricultural and environmental sectors
  • Quality assurance and production line supervision in the pharmaceutical, and food and beverage industries, and the agricultural and environmental sectors
  • Biotechnology-based entrepreneurship in the area of food and beverages, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and the environment
  • Technological innovation and development in public and private research centers

 

¿Te identificas?

The three stages of the model

Choose your path

IBT

1 Exploration

  1. You will open your competency file and add to it throughout your degree program.
  2. You will learn the foundations of the area of Engineering - Bioengineering and Chemical Processes.
  3. You will participate in fundamental and exploration challenges from the area of Engineering - Bioengineering and Chemical Processes, interacting with peers from different degree programs.
  4. You will study general education courses, selecting them from a collection.
  5. You will participate in a challenge that integrates all the competencies to be developed in this phase.

 

2 Focus

  1. You will acquire the core competencies of your degree, in other words, those that distinguish it.
  2. You will participate in more focused challenges to reinforce what you have learned and broaden your basic knowledge.
  3. You will have the elements to decide whether to deepen your knowledge or diversify and, subsequently, build your specialization plan.
  4. The Tec Weeks, challenges and overall university experiences will enrich your file.

 

3 Specialization

  1. You have decided between diversifying or focusing deeply in your major, which you will achieve by choosing a concentration or a stay, to name a few of your options. The TEC Semester is a flexible time to start.

  2. You will develop the competencies related to your specialization, increasingly connected to your passions, interests and plans.
  3. By passing a concentration, you will develop your competencies, and, on graduating, will be a candidate for obtaining a Diploma in that concentration, after meeting the established requirements.
