Do you love conducting experiments? If so, a post-secondary education in science technologies may be for you. Individuals who enter the field assist research scientists with experiments, data collection, calculations, and drawing conclusions.

Opportunities exist in more than one sector. You can choose a biology/chemistry focus and learn about the laboratory practices and procedures involved in developing new processes and compounds. With an environmental concentration, you will examine issues relating to resource sustainability and the impacts of pollutants and contaminants. The medical/clinical curriculum will prepare you to use the instrumentation, equipment, and computer programs required to collect lab samples from patients and perform various tests. As a student of forensic technology, you’ll learn the skills needed to assist law enforcement with forensic evidence analysis. There is even a nuclear and industrial radiologic technology option, which teaches the principles and techniques for monitoring radiation levels in nuclear plants.
