Bioanalytical chemistry is a key discipline in biomedical research and applied to a study of biological processes, detection and diagnosis of human diseases, and preclinical and clinical trials of drugs and biopharmaceutical products in biological systems.
The Illinois Institute of Technology is the first university in the country to offer a B.S. in Bioanalytical Chemistry. The Bioanalytical Chemistry programme offered at the Illinois Institute of Technology provides you with an interdisciplinary background in bioanalytical principles and methods, and applications of analytical chemistry for detection, characterization, and quantification of bioactive molecules in biological systems.
You will have an opportunity to conduct undergraduate research with chemistry faculty in the areas of biosensor technology, microscopic protein detection, antibody drug conjugate (ADC) chemistry, and computational simulation of protein-protein interaction.
You will receive a rigorous education in traditional chemistry areas and the requisite knowledge and technical skills to develop a career in bioanalysis, biomedicine, biotechnology, clinical science, or pharmaceutical science. With this degree, you might apply for various lab positions in pharmaceutical companies, research institutes, clinics, biotech companies, other industry, or federal or state government. You also may pursue graduate studies in bioanalytical chemistry, biochemistry, biopharmaceutical science, pharmaceutical science, or pharmacology and earn an M.S. degree or Ph.D.

You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
Academic requirements: Academic requirements: average GPA of a 3.0 (on a 4.0 U.S. scale)
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
When choosing a college, it’s important to consider not just the cost of the education, but also its long-term value. Attending IIT is an enriching experience that creates opportunities for your future, whether in undergraduate/graduate study, the workplace, or daily life. As well there are opportunities to receive
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
