National and International Recognition for Biotechnology Programs
A number of the majors in the Bachelor of Biotechnology degree program are accredited by the Royal Australian Chemical Institute for the educational relevance of their chemistry content: Chemical Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, and Drug Design & Development.
The Master of Biotechnology and Master of Biotechnology (Advanced) programs have been recognised by the U. S. Council of Graduate Schools as affiliated Professional Science Master's Programs.
This recognition is conferred upon degree programs which allow students to pursue advanced training in science, while simultaneously developing workplace skills highly valued by employers.
UQ Biotechnology Director, Professor Ross Barnard, said this outcome reflects the high standard of the programs at UQ.
"This puts us in the company of masters programs at Stanford, the University of British Columbia, the University of California, New York University and Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey", said Professor Barnard.
