Getting a Doctoral Degree in biological science is required for becoming a genetic engineer. The course you will need to focus on in the first years of study as an undergraduate are chemistry, zoology, botany, and biology.
The next step would be graduate studies that will include courses in genetics, microbiology, biochemistry, and embryology. After four years to earn your bachelor’s degree, another two years is required to earn your Master’s Degree. In order to get your doctorate degree, you will need to attend school for another four years after you receive your bachelor’s degree.
