Applied science is basically putting scientific knowledge to practical use. Graduates of associate degree programs in applied science find jobs as technicians, drafters and engineers. They also land jobs in health care as therapists and technicians.
Medical laboratory scientists, also known as clinical laboratory scientists, are highly skilled professionals who perform analytical tests on blood, tissue and body fluids to provide laboratory information for the detection, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. They work independently and have skills and knowledge that are greater in depth and breadth compared to medical laboratory technicians, who typically are graduates of a two-year or community college program. There also is a growing trend for medical laboratory scientists to perform wellness laboratory testing aimed at preventing disease.
