Before graduation, students participate in an internship at a local biotechnology or other lab focused company. This experience helps them make the transitition from the skills practice to skills application. All students have been very successful in this program as they contribute to the goals of their employer's company.

After graduation, students from the biotechnology program at LSC-Montgomery have found success in many areas. Some are employed by local companies while others chose to extend their education with advanced work.
For students interested in furthering their research skills, The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center offers a Bachelor of Science Degree in Molecular Genetic Technology and in Cytogenetic Technology. Both programs are highly intensive and offer students opportunities to learn using the most sophisticated testing equipment and techniques available today.
