This program prepares you to work as a research technologist in life sciences through familiarization with scientific methods, experimental techniques and research equipment. You’ll gain the theoretical and practical training to perform assays with the level of efficiency, precision and accuracy necessary for research and development work.
Since the number of seats at the third semester level is limited, students who fail to maintain a semester GPA of at least 2.5 during their first year and each subsequent semester will be transferred to an alternative program within the School of Biological Sciences and Applied Chemistry.
In the School of Biological Sciences and Applied Chemistry, the Technician (two-year) and Technologist (three-year) programs have a common first year, that is, semester one and semester two.
