There is an increasing involvement of business in the application of science and technology that is encouraged by a wide range of government incentives. As a result, there is a demand for professional accountants, who work in the public practice industry and government, and understand the specialized needs for services in these areas. The Faculty of Science, in co-operation with the School of Accounting and Finance, offers an Honours Biotechnology/Chartered Professional Accountancy Program which combines courses in Biotechnology with courses in Accounting and business-related areas of study. This program provides a unique opportunity to prepare professional accountants with an integrated educational experience for a role in providing accounting and advisory services in the rapidly growing science and technology business sector of the economy.

Students considering a Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) designation should be aware of all CPA requirements.

Students are admitted directly into the program from high school but must successfully complete a provisional first year to proceed into the program in second year.


Continuation in the program requires a cumulative Science average of 65%, a cumulative Accounting average of 70% and a cumulative overall average of 70%.
