DescriptionThis 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 the level of efficiency, precision and accuracy necessary for research and development work. Choose between the co–operative education mode (BTAC) and the non co–operative education mode (BTA). 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.

Students meeting all academic requirements may have the opportunity to complete an optional work term(s) in a formal work environment. The work term(s) is similar in length to an academic semester and typically involves full-time work hours that may be paid or unpaid. In programs with limited work term opportunities, additional academic requirements and a passing grade on a communication assessment may be required for eligibility. Eligibility for participation does not guarantee a work position will be secured. Additional fees are required for those participating in the optional work term stream regardless of success in securing a work position.
