Overview

Advanced Diploma in Biotechnology Advanced

Do you love all things science? Investigating questions? Setting up experiments? The Biotechnology Advanced program at St. Lawrence College is a predominantly hands-on, laboratory, and practical-based course

As a student, you will perform genetic assays, investigate contaminated soil and water, determine food-borne illnesses, clone for proteins, ferment antibiotics, and create plant hybrids.

According to Statistics Canada, Biotechnology is one of the fastest growing global industries with Canada providing a strong and growing employer base in the biotech sector necessitating the demand for well-trained laboratory personnel. 

The program offers practical training in all aspects of biotechnology with a focus on the hands-on applied skills that ensure students are ready for immediate integration into the workforce. 

The final 14-week semester of the program is dedicated to providing a real-world learning opportunity by placing students in a research or industrial work site as entry-level Biotechnologists.
