New York is home to multiple options to study biotechnology and similar engineering or environmental/ag degree programs. Options within New York City such as Columbia University, York College, and DeVry University are some of the top colleges students chose to study biotech, especially at the bachelors-level. Other options outside of the city limits such as Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY, and The State University of New York at Buffalo are reputable universities to study bioengineering and biotechnology.
With organizations like the New York City Bioscience Association that has over 250 associated members, New York is making a considerable effort to boost the State’s biotechnology credentials. Law makers in New York have worked hard to relax stem cell laws and pile investment dollars into this area.

There are some very impressive statistics that New York boasts when it comes to being a leader in biotechnology. According to the NY Bio Association, NY graduates more life science doctorates/PhD’s than any other state in the nation. Additionally, 60% of large pharmaceutical companies reside their national or global headquarters in New York, and the state is home to a quarter of the clinical trials in the US.
