Whether you want to explore the mysteries of DNA, aid in the development of innovative biotechnologies, or study the diagnosis and treatment of disease, you can reach your career goals with a Biochemistry degree from Florida Institute of Technology.


Biochemistry careers are built on a solid foundation of understanding complex chemical reactions that occur inside each living organism. Also known as the chemistry of life, the study of biochemistry connects the living world to the chemical world to study the processes that occur in plants, animals, and single-celled organisms. 

Biochemistry is responsible for most of the advances in medical research, agriculture, and genetic engineering, all of which are generally accomplished by tying together new medical technologies and discoveries in both genetic and cell biology. 

When new or transformational discoveries are unveiled, it is likely that a biochemist is part of the team. With a Biochemistry degree from Florida Institute of Technology, this could be you.

Why Pursue A Biochemistry Degree At Florida Tech?

Perhaps the greatest benefit of studying biochemistry at Florida Tech is being part of two outstanding science departments—Biology and Chemistry—both of which are committed to a high level of faculty-student interaction and collaboration.

We have strong ties to the Kennedy Space Center and the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, which means more opportunities for students. In addition, nearby natural resources such as the estuarine habitats of the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean marine ecosystem are ideal for biological research, making Florida Tech one of the country's most attractive biochemistry colleges.
