Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
BT- Society
Purpose:
Texas A&M Biotechnology Society provides a forum for students interested in biotechnology to develop professionally. The society allows scientifically literate students to link with business. The environment provided allows Texas A&M students with an interest in biotechnology to meet students of similar interests, network for future job opportunities, and experience the myriad of different cultures that are prevalent within the TAMU Biotechnology Program and on the A&M campus. Biotechnology is a rapidly growing field where industry plays a major role in job opportunities available to students. The ability to meet with future employers who come to speak to members offers vast opportunities for students involved in this organization. An integral part of the Biotechnology Program is the Industry Advisory Council; this is the link that students will use to transition into industry. Having representatives come to meetings offered by the Biotechnology Society will open doors for all students involved and assist with their professional career development. The Biotechnology Society facilitates communication among students of diverse backgrounds. We organize social activities, guest lectures, field trips, and promote Texas A&M University.
