Synthetic Biology, P.B.C.



Learn More

Synthetic biology involves redesigning biological systems such as enzymes for useful purposes by engineering them to have new abilities and functions. It can be used to find solutions in medicine, manufacturing, and agriculture. The post-baccalaureate certificate in Synthetic Biology program at UNC Greensboro allows students with STEM bachelor’s degrees to understand the fundamental concepts in synthetic biology and prepare them for their future careers related to this ever-expanding field.

Program Distinctions

The Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) is an academic collaboration of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T) and UNC Greensboro. Both of these institutions are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

The Student Experience

JSNN recruits the best and brightest students from a variety of disciplines to conduct advanced research in Nanoengineering and Nanoscience. Students are challenged to choose a research area that is expected to provide significant benefit to mankind. Beyond becoming exceptional researchers, students will develop leadership and communication skills that will make them an exceptional asset in any academic, industry or government organization.

After Graduation

JSNN has six research focus areas—nanobioscience, nanometrology, nanomaterials (with special emphasis on nanocomposite materials), nanobioelectronics, nanoenergy, and computational nanotechnology. These technical areas will afford numerous opportunities for collaboration with industrial partners.
