These practical components are the focus of the program and are developed and reinforced through an integration of practical laboratory experiences. Integrative laboratory projects are designed to simulate a real life experience through translation of theory to practice. The program provides a valuable specialization to students interested in life sciences programs without having to go elsewhere for practical laboratory skills training.
Students will benefit from:
- laboratory skills development linked to industry demands
- extensive applied/hands-on laboratory experience
- simulated learning environments
- integrative project work that links applied and academic fields (simulating real work experiences)
- acquiring a recognized skill set applicable to a wide variety of employment opportunities
- a unique integrated approach
- learning to operate laboratory equipment stable in the field of science and biotechnology
- learning to adapt to the changing field and stay current
Biotechnology has applications in many industrial fields such as health/medical, agriculture, food, non-food, environment, pharma/drug, etc. The wide extent of biotechnological application in modifying biological systems for specific and beneficial uses in the society has created an overwhelming demand for skilled talents. While Canada has the opportunity to capitalize on biotechnology, it has a critical shortage of highly skilled talents. Our program prepares students to move into entry-level laboratory science positions in diverse bio-based sectors such as:
- food and beverage bioprocesses
- environmental assessment
- protection and remediation
- pharmaceutical preparation
- testing industrial product analysis
- development and manufacturing
- medical diagnostic testing
- related research and development
