Biotechnology and Good Manufacturing Practice
The Biotechnology Program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in the biomanufacturing industry. Students will develop a broad laboratory science-based background through courses focused in the life and chemical sciences, and will obtain industry-specific knowledge in the areas of quality control (QC), process development (PD), and upstream and downstream processing, while following current, good manufacturing practices (cGMP). In addition, students will learn valuable laboratory techniques and instrumentation, and develop critical thinking skills. Upon successful completion of the program, students may enter the workforce directly as entry-level laboratory technicians or research assistants, or may transfer to a four-year university to continue their studies at the baccalaureate level.
Biotechnology is the practical application of science developed by a cluster of diverse fields with a common link. It utilizes living organisms to manufacture products intended to improve the quality of life. The practical applications of biotechnology can be found in the following sectors:
• Pharmaceutical products (medications)
• Agriculture (genetically modified organisms)
• Bioremediation (removal of environmental pollutants)
