Biotechnology

Biotechnology is the crossroads where biology and technology meet. This area of applied science utilizes knowledge of cellular and molecular processes to develop solutions that help both people and the environment. Although it is fairly new as a field of study, the principles guiding biotechnology have been used for thousands of years: the simple concept that fruit juice can be fermented into wine, for example, is an application of biotechnology in action. This exciting field is always changing and expanding; whether you are just starting out in the biotechnology world, or are pursuing career advancement, taking some courses in biotechnology can only enhance your options.

Prestigious universities worldwide offer degree programs in biotechnology, both at the graduate and undergraduate level. In a graduate degree program, the biotechnology courses provide experience with quantitative analysis, writing and critical thinking skills, as well as a strong focus on molecular science. Additionally, there are often opportunities for research and internships that accompany these programs.

With the appropriate biotechnology courses and degrees, graduates can pursue jobs as lab assistants, research assistants, chemists, microbiologists, and much more. Whether you are looking to take biotechnology courses in your home country, or are interested in international study, it should be easy to locate an educational institution that meets your needs.

Course - Medical Research and Biotechnology

Medical aspects of biology fascinate you. Study Medical Research and Biotechnology and you will develop into an international expert in biomedicine or biotechnology in two years.

Insulin for diabetics used to be isolated from pigs. Not all patients respond well to this. Research is focussed on producing true human insulin using bacteria. You investigate the molecular mechanism of this disease and the responses to pig and human insulin. And you try to optimise the production of human insulin with bacteria in larger quantities using a bioreactor.

You

Biology interests you. You are inventive and curious. Able to think critically. You want to know what information lies hidden in cells. You are precise and a perfectionist. You want to do work that matters.... [-]

Forest Technology The Forest Technology program trains students for the position of forest technician. The technician is an employee who works under the direction of a professional (BS degree) forester and will undertake the fieldwork that is necessary to manage the forest. A career as a forest technician involves a variety of challenging jobs including timber inventory, procurement, maintenance of forest roads, forest management, forest stand improvement, fire and pest control, soil and water conservation, wildlife management, harvest planning, logging, cartography, and surveying. Technicians work outside in all kinds of weather and have to do some office work. Like most professions, forestry is a high technology field with portable data collectors, geographic information systems (GIS), computer analysis of harvesting strategies, and decision-making models for forest management. The Forest Technology curriculum emphasizes the development of practical field skills. Students often have the opportunity to participate in forestry field operations such as control burning, stand description, running land lines, and development of forest management plans. The curriculum emphasizes forestry practices that are common and accepted in the Southeast. The training is sufficiently broad to assure the graduate of competing successfully for jobs throughout the United States. The cost of attending LBWCC is comparatively low. Financial aid is available along with a limited number of LBWCC Foundation scholarships. Forestry scholarship applications are available through the Forestry Department and must be submitted yearly by March 1. Topics Introduction to Forestry Dendrology Timber Harvesting Forestry Mathematics Cartography Microcomputer Applications Silviculture Forest Entomology/Pathology Forest Fire Control/Use Forest Mensuration Forestry Research/Management Forest Management Practices Advanced Forest Mensuration Job Opportunities Qualifies women and men for a wide range of jobs in the out-of-doors, principally at the middle-management level. A forest technician must be able to work alone, to make decisions, and to supervise small crews in the field. [-]
