“I love the science lab application part of biotechnology, and I like that it’s cutting edge technology. I’ve always loved science, even chemistry, and my dream job would be to work in a hospital or pharmaceutical lab. I think I’d enjoy being a lab rat, doing tests and experiments, trying to solve problems and find out how things work. I’ve learned a lot of research skills at El Centro.

Dr. Kaur is great in the classroom and really knows about the biotechnology industry. She will go online to show us all about the different companies in the industry.

“The quality of the program is good, and I’ve learned a lot; I think I could just step into a job and start working. The best part of this program has been learning all of the new science. It’s a good program that I would recommend to other students.”

Robin Ruthenborg earned an associate degree in Biotechnology at El Centro College in summer 2008 following a summer internship. A graduate of Garland’s Lakeview Centennial High School, she also attended Richland College. Robin is currently working full time while also finishing a bachelor’s degree in molecular biology at the University of Texas at Dallas. She may pursue a master’s degree in biotechnology once she completes her bachelor’s.
