Biotechnology, a broad term covering such disciplines as agriculture, pharmaceuticals, microbiology and medical device development, is a rapidly growing field in Colorado and nationally. Those wishing to pursue a career in biotechnology need to have a strong knowledge of biology and chemistry, which is why we offer a certificate program that allows students to acquire special skills in research-based biology and chemistry.
The need for the ESIL Certificate
The stewardship of indigenous lands depends, in part, on scientifically awar, culturally-sensitive individuals who can serve as environmental liasons between triban and non-tribal government, and private and non-profit organizations. We have created a network of tribal and non-tribal agencies to provide ESIL students with the most current porfessionally relevant training to meet the employment needs in this critical area of environmental stewardship.
