Microbiology Lab Spring 2013

Microbiology Lab Spring 2013

The course, Fundamentals of Microbiology, has a lecture and laboratory component. The lecture focuses on the structure of prokaryotic and eukaryotic microorganisms, interaction between the microbe and the host, and human diseases. Laboratory sessions focus on pure culture techniques, methods of staining and the microscopic, colonial and biochemical identification of saprophytic organisms. Overall Class Learning Outcomes (1) Use analytical and critical thinking skills to approach a research project. (2) Develop basic microbiology laboratory techniques. (3) Differentiate the various types of test used in identifying and classifying pathogenic microorganisms. (4) Use the scientific method to gather, analyze, interpret and present field base research project

NSF HSI IUSE Transfer Success Program

NSF HSI IUSE Transfer Success Program

The objective of City Tech’s NSF HSI IUSE program is to improve transfer success and accelerate baccalaureate degree completion of associate degree graduates through implementation and evaluation of two strategies: 1. A STEM Transfer Collaborative to strengthen transfer pathways, adopting strategies from CUNY’s Pathways articulation initiative. 2. Momentum to the Baccalaureate, a support structure for junior and senior-level transfer students, designed using targeted and lower overall-cost components of the successful CUNY ASAP (Accelerated Study in Associate Programs) model, which addresses barriers to degree completion for associate degree students. This project is a collaboration between six City University of New York (CUNY) community colleges (5 Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs)) – Bronx CC, Kingsborough CC, Guttman CC, LaGCC, BMCC and New York City College of Technology, CUNY (City Tech), an urban, public, commuter, Hispanic Serving Institution, offering both career-focused associate and bachelor’s degrees. City Tech students accepted into the program will received personalized advisement and mentoring and free MetroCards during the academic year. To be eligible you must be a full-time student, US citizen or permanent resident, have an associate degree or be within 6 credits of earning, either from City Tech or one of the participating community colleges, and plan to enroll in one of the following bachelor’s programs: Applied Chemistry, Computer Engineering Technology, Computer Systems, Construction Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology.
