Biotechnology Lab Specialist
Biotechnology is an exciting and rapidly expanding field. Biologists and other scientists working in research and development use biotechnology techniques for the production of genetically engineered drugs, gene therapy, microbiology, virology, forensic science, agriculture and environmental science. Shoreline's Biotechnology Lab Specialist Program opens the door to a field filled with opportunity.
We provide practical, "hands-on" learning with cutting edge techniques, technologies, and equipment. You will gain a working knowledge of molecular biology, recombinant DNA, immunology, protein purification and tissue culture. The curriculum also provides a foundation in a variety of math and science disciplines including algebra, statistics, chemistry, biology, microbiology and computer science.
Getting started: Both degree and certificate students must submit an application in the Spring prior to beginning the second year (core) Biotech courses.
|AAAS degree A two-year program for those without a science background. The first year provides
a foundation in math and basic sciences. The second year focuses on applied biotechnology.
Both options include an internship in local Biotechnology labs.
|Certificate of Proficiency
A one-year program for students with prior scientific training and/or experience.
Acceptance into the program: Students accepted into the program will receive notification by the first week of June. Acceptance into the program guarantees you a space in all of the Biotech core courses in the second year of the program.
