Integrated Curricula and Professions

Many programs of study at Cook College integrate discipline areas and can be applied to professions in several different fields. For example, the bioresource engineering major teaches students to use the physical and biological sciences in solving problems related to plants, animals, food, wastes, and our natural environment. This program enables graduates to take examinations leading to a professional engineering license.

The biotechnology major prepares students for the field of biotechnology, which is a key contributor to the advancement of agriculture, medicine, and environmental sciences. Students learn fundamental knowledge and laboratory skills, including molecular biology, and establish a firm foundation in biology and the physical sciences. Cook College faculty members, who frequently form partnerships with pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food, environmental, and agricultural companies, are teaching their students the skills that are in demand in industry. Undergraduates have ample opportunities to work in industrial settings prior to graduation and, upon graduation, have the necessary skills to enter the biotechnology field. The program also prepares students for graduate and professional study in the life sciences.
