BIOINSTRUMENTATION TECHNOLOGY SPECIALIZATION

Associate of Applied Science Degree

ACCTech

The Bioinstrumentation Technology degree plan prepares students to become technicians or technologists for the Biotechnology industries. Students take a strong set of electronic and electromechanical-related courses that provide the foundation for understanding how these devices work. Whether the equipment is for sampling, counting, sorting, measuring, or analyzing substances for the biotechnology industry or whether the devices are used for human monitoring and conditioning, the underlying devices and subsystems are electronic based and require a strong understanding of them.

To receive an Associate of Applied Science in Electronics and Advanced Technologies, students must: (a) make a minimum grade of "C" in all required electronic, math, and science courses and (b) have an overall GPA of 2.0 or greater.
