Integration of Interdisciplinary Techniques: Agricultural Biotechnology - (ITAB)
ITAB - Resumen / Abstract (info) Print
Tamaño:

          The University of Puerto Rico in Ponce (UPRP) proposes to develop a regular project titled Integration of Interdisciplinary Techniques: Agricultural Biotechnology in collaboration with the University of Puerto Rico in Utuado (UPRU). The application of biotechnology techniques is commonly used in agriculture and related areas. The Associate Degree in Agricultural Production Technology (APT) at the University of Puerto Rico in Utuado (UPRU) does not offer this type of experiences. On the other hand, the University of Puerto Rico in Ponce (UPRP) offers a Baccalaureate Degree in Biology with a Sub-concentration in Biotechnology (BB).

          For that reason, collaboration between this Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI), and the US Forest Service (USFS) will permit that students from both institutions acquire relevant technical skills on biotechnology applied to agriculture. In that way, students will be able to face the challenges of a constantly changing workforce.

The projects’ objectives are:

  • to promote interest in the field of Agricultural Biotechnology, in at least 90% of the participant students (25/28),
  • to increase hands-on experiences by performing techniques thru laboratories exercise, in at least 90% of the participant students (25/28) and, 
  • complement the Biotechnology and Agricultural curriculum with a common course that will serve as a link between both programs of the participating partners Institutions.

          In order to reach those goals, a course of Agricultural Biotechnology (PREH-4990-B01, 3 credits, 45 hours) and workshops, focused on the development of agricultural skills, will be created and offered, respectively. It is expected to impact a total of 28 students (12 from BB and 16 from APT, student experiential learning) and two professors (Faculty development, UPRU) during the whole project period. The course will be offered during the second semester of each of the consecutive project’s years, and the workshops will be offered during the summer of each of the consecutive project’s years.
