My Degree Is from MIT and the Bunker Hill Community College

In a blog post, Sandra Porter considers the various career paths people can take to get jobs in biotech, and she says that a partnership between research universities and community colleges could make the process more efficient. After all, she notes, community colleges want to be known for teaching specific job skills, whereas most universities shy away from such applied coursework. If the institutions were able to come up with a joint program, Porter writes, "this would allow students to get a four-year degree, which many students want, and give them access to the job preparation expertise at the community colleges."
