Certificate of Specialization: General & Emerging Technologies Laboratory Technician

Description:

The General and Emerging Technologies Laboratory Technician (GET LAB TECH) program came from a need to train students in entry-level and advanced laboratory technical skills for the industrial workplace. GET LAB TECH focuses on basic science and workplace skills with a goal of preparing students for entry-level jobs in laboratory-science based industries. One of the elective courses for this program is NANO 010: Intro to Nanotechnology.

The program offers a Certificate of Specialization, a departmental award in an area of specialization requiring less than 18 semester units. This issuance of the departmental award is not recorded on the student’s official transcript.

Courses: 
Courses for the certificate:
  • BIOSCI-090 Biology for Technology (3 units)
  • BIOSCI-095 Cleanroom Technology (1 unit)
  • CHEM-090 Chemistry for Technology (3 units)
  • CIT-140 Survey of Microsoft Office Programs (3 units)
  • ENGR-090 Exploring Gadgets, Engineering & Technology (3 units)
