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 efficiency, precision and accuracy necessary for research and development work.
Choose between the co-operative education mode (BTRC) and the non co-operative education mode (BTR). Non co-op students will follow the sequence of the regular academic semesters. Co-op students, depending on the length of their first work term after the fourth semester, have several ways to complete the final academic semesters. See the co-op models for possible progression paths, or the Program Co-ordinator for other alternatives.
Since the number of seats at the third semester level is limited, students who fail to maintain a semester grade point average 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.
