    • Colorado School of Mines Launches Biotech Undergraduate Degree

      A new undergraduate degree program at Colorado School of Mines will prepare students to harness the power of biology and mathematics to address the next generation of challenges in healthcare, energy and the environment. The Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Biosciences and Engineering will begin enrolling students this fall. The new program will provide a rigorous Mines education at the interface of biology, mathematics, computer science, physics and chemistry, focused on the quantitative skills and mindset needed for impactful careers in medicine and biomedical fields, as well as bioenergy, biomaterials, bioengineering, biomechanics, bioenvironmental and biophysical engineering. “Graduates of the Quantitative Biosciences and Engineering Program will be uniquely equipped to tackle the challenges we will face today and in the not-too-distant future, including the impact of the data revolution and Big Data,” said Brian Trewyn, associate professor of chemistry. “Simply put, there is a need for graduates who can both use a micropipette in the laboratory and write code at the computer terminal – this new bachelor’s degree program will produce such individuals.” READ MORE>>>
