never trust a scientist who also claims to be a creationist.

Seraphya

How can they hope to understand biotechnology without understanding evolution?!

Sarek

Yeah, wouldn't biotech conflict with the Adam & Eve Y6K etc. beliefs?

devorah

And any employer who hires them will have to maintain this nonsense?

Not sure what the biotechnology degrees mean. In the States Bachelor's Degrees in any biology field is useless, you need a PhD or at least master's.

My guess is that the biotechnology degrees are window dressing for training toward positions such as Lab Technician or Research Assistant.

It is a great that the program tries to steer Haredim toward education which can lead to a job and not toward soft science degrees which are mostly useless in getting a job ( but are good in learning about the human condition...)

Here's the program description:
http://www.hadassah.org/site/c.keJNIWOvElH/b.6585255/

"The three-year curriculum includes courses in molecular biology, DNA analysis, molecular genetics, bioinformatics, drug design, immunology, and microbiology."

A comparable US college 3-year program ("http://madisoncollege.edu/biotechnology-laboratory-technician-3-year-program-option") is titled "Biotechnology Laboratory Technician - 3 Year Program Option". That's a more realistic description. It's job training for work in a wet lab.

Impossible! Haredim do not go to college.

They can't. This is going to be great for secularism.
