TOTAL CREDITS 62
A highly marketable biotech degree is your ticket to enter the workforce directly or to transfer to a four-year college or university with hands-on training in PCR, electrophoresis, high performance liquid chromatography, western blots, cell and tissue culture and gene sequencing. You’ll be trained in standard operating procedures, general manufacturing processes, record-keeping and lab safety in small classes by highly qualified faculty who provide career guidance. Along with exceptional lab facilities, you’ll have practical learning experiences and networking opportunities with local industry partners.
Many program courses can be applied to the associate of science – general or the associate of science – biology degree.
Associate of science in biotechnology
The Biotechnology Career Enhancement Certificate gives you foundational skills for the biotech field and benefits you whether you’re just starting out or already have a bachelor’s degree but would like more hands-on experience for the job market.
The certificate is stackable toward the associate degree in biotechnology and gives you the skills you need to secure a summer internship.
