Biotechnology/Economics

Biotechnology/Economics is a program within the Faculty of Science and is focused on making an economical impact in commercial biotechnology, genomics, medical diagnosticis, pollution monitoring, and more. The current program is offered as a co-op only major where students will examine technology from a business perspective and use scientific analysis to solve cutting-edge business problems.

This major is currently running for those students enrolled in the program. Starting in September 2021, Biotechnology/Economics will no longer be available as an undergraduate program at the University of Waterloo. Students already enrolled in the program will still continue to advance and graduate from the program, but no new admissions will be available.
