The Applied Laboratory Technology degree program is geared toward students seeking a challenging career as a laboratory technician assistant. Students in this program will learn to:
Operate laboratory equipment
Conduct routine sample analysis
Conduct analyses that evaluate product quality and consistency
Operate equipment and instrumentation for quality assurance procedures
The Applied Laboratory Technology, A.A.S. degree program is a continuation of the Applied Laboratory Technician Certificate program. This program trains students to work in a manufacturing facility conducting routine quality assurance testing and sampling. The Applied Laboratory Technology, A.A.S. degree program gives students the ability to choose two different concentrations at the time of admissions. The Microbiology Concentration will train students to become a microbiology laboratory quality assurance analyst. Students will be able to perform routine microbiological tasks required in a manufacturing setting. The Analytical Concentration will train students to become quality assurance technicians in a manufacturing setting. Students will develop problem-solving skills that are needed to work in a complex manufacturing environment.
