How my career relates to my degree from RIT/NTID

My AAS degree is in Laboratory Science Technology. It allowed me to learn analytical processes in the laboratory. I learned the need to perform specific tasks, being more practical relating to mechanical, information technology, mathematical, or scientific tasks. As scientists in the industry, we will be involved with variety of laboratory investigation in biology, chemical, and life science areas. I received all those skills from LST where we have been hands-on with a great range of equipment such as High Pressure Liquid Chromatography, Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrum, and more.
