Applied Biotechnology Advisory Board
The online UW Extended Campus Applied Biotechnology master’s and certificate programs are supported by an advisory board consisting of 12 to 15 representatives from the biotechnology industry who serve as advisors, ambassadors, and referral agents to the program.
The advisory board meets bi-annually and members provide constructive feedback regarding changes in the industry and how those changes affect program graduates. The meetings ensure the program and curriculum stays relevant to trends in biotechnology. Board members are also asked to host students working on capstone projects, and create school-to-work transitions, so that as students graduate from the program they will move to gainful employment.
