Bioscience Technology

Marion Technical College and North Central State College have entered into a partnership in order to offer an associate degree in Bioscience Technology to MTC students.  This consortium allows MTC students to take general education courses at MTC, and a blend of bioscience technology courses from North Central State College.

Bioscience is one of the newest areas of interest in the medical, agricultural, manufacturing and criminal justice fields.  This broad-based program will give you the basic knowledge required by the versatile careers available, as well as the processes, techniques and safety issues required in the lab.  Bioscience covers a wide selection of scientific disciplines that covers living organisms from the smallest living organisms to the largest. Scientists involved in this area seek to improve chemical process and organisms.
Career Opportunities

According to Regional Job Projections, (within 45 miles of Mansfield), employment of bioscience technicians in the region is expected to grow at 7 percent or approximately 54 new jobs through 2016.
