Program Overview – Bio-science Technology Degree Program
The Bio-science Technology associate degree prepares graduates to perform a number of biotechnology related careers, including laboratory research, and skills to work in sophisticated biotechnology manufacturing settings. Bio-science encompasses many critical areas of research on living organisms including development of drugs and medical devices, criminal forensics, environmental science, and agricultural biotechnology. This program focuses principally on advanced biochemistry and biotechnology laboratory skills, such as analytical DNA, RNA, and protein techniques, cell culture, and microbiology. Our educational approach emphasizes critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
