Our degrees focus on a “hands-on” training approach spanning topics from basic laboratory skills such as micropipetting and solution preparation to more advanced skills such as quantitative PCR, HPLC and cell culture. In addition, the program also provides specialized training in bioinformatics, regulatory affairs, and biomanufacturing.

The AAS and ATC degrees have a capstone internship course where students apply all their new skills on the job. Most graduates are hired within their internship; others that are seeking employment find jobs in a few months after graduation.

We offer both day and night classes in both Round Rock and Austin, in addition to online and summer course offering to accommodate both day-time and night-time (working) students.
