  • Industrial Sciences Track

    The Industrial Sciences Track is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in laboratory sciences. It is for individuals who do not want to spend 5-7 years in PhD programs and would like careers in laboratory science such as research and development, product development, manufacturing or laboratory management. It is designed for individuals who would like to learn modern methods or to update their laboratory skill sets in biotechnology. While it shares elements of the Bioscience Track, this track will emphasize graduate courses that have laboratory components.
