Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Technology
Our bachelor’s in Biomedical Technology program, with its concentration in
Clinical Laboratory Sciences, is designed to appeal to students with the
curiosity and investigative drive to explore the many facets of human health.
Students in the program may also seek to pursue the five-year
joint degree program to obtain their
master's in Biotechnology-Cytotechnology.
The Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) concentration teaches you to perform a full
range of laboratory analyses that are essential for the diagnosis and treatment
of disease. These laboratory analyses are applicable to the fields of human and
veterinary medicine, forensics, drug development and research.
The master's program in Biotechnology-Cytotechnology enables
graduates to become highly qualified members of the diagnostic
team, working with pathologists in the early detection of cancer
and other diseases.
Students in the Biomedical Technology program may also forego
the CLS concentration and
joint degree program to pursue a more generalized course of study that emphasizes research and technology,
earning what one faculty member describes as a “cutting-edge biomedical sciences
The combination of your classroom instruction with training in laboratory applications
is well suited for pursuing opportunities in fields such as Health Biometrics, Molecular
Technology, and Environmental and Medical Toxicology. Students in the Biomedical
Technology program are also well prepared for opportunities in research, graduate
school and medicine.
According to the American Society for Clinical Pathology, the national vacancy rate
today for clinical laboratory scientists and cytotechnology professionals is nearly
