Technology Studies: Biomolecular Science Option
A College of Technology Pathway
The Connecticut College of Technology is an innovative program leading to a Bachelor of Science Degree in engineering or technology. The program consists of two distinct pathways, one in Engineering Science and one in Technology Studies. After completing the Technology Studies Pathway Program at Three Rivers, students may enter directly into technical fields at Central Connecticut State University or Charter Oak State College (Connecticut's External Degree Program). The Engineering Science Pathway leads directly into the School of Engineering at the University of Connecticut or the University of New Haven,
The pathway courses will transfer to engineering and technology programs at many other public and private universities as well.
Associate in Science
Contact Person: James Copeland- 860-215-9416
This option will create a new area of emphasis for the College of
Technology, providing an area of specialty for students who wish to
go into a biomolecular science career as a laboratory technician
and/or pursue a baccalaureate degree through the Pathways program at
Central Connecticut State University in Biomolecular Sciences. The
associate's degree can also serve as a career-oriented degree for
students who choose to enter workforce in various laboratory
environments such as an academic research laboratory, environmental
laboratory, or medical laboratory.
