The Saint Paul College Instrumentation Lab and Clean Room Facility is a multi-user facility designed for use by students and faculty, as well as users from business and industry. In order to encourage the development of local industry part of our mission is to allow affordable and reliable access to analytical equipment and lab and clean room space, as well as to promote collaboration between the private and public sectors. This entails not only providing a forum for overlap between students and private sector scientists, but also the sharing of ideas and areas of expertise between faculty, students, and employees in the private sector. Additionally, it is our job as a MNSCU institution to educate scientists and to provide training so that our students may become valuable assets to these industries after graduation. Saint Paul College offers several programs designed to develop students into good scientists, including chemistry and chemical technology A.S. degree programs, and a biomedical engineering A.S. degree.
