Biomanufacturing and Genomics technologies have a growing importance in the biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. This concentration program will introduce students to the ever-expanding industries related to biotechnology, biopharmaceutical, and biomedical sciences. The goal of this program is to introduce students to modern biological techniques, which they will use to apply their scientific knowledge and skills to real-world biotech research and academic problems and to train and educate students to acquire skill sets that are top in-demand techniques/expertise in the biotechnology industry, including genomics, biomanufacturing process, and biopharma R&D. These techniques include bioreactor use, in vivo and in vitro cell culturing, GMP-Good Manufacturing Practices, aseptic technique, genomic editing techniques like CRISPR, equipment prep, chromatography, assays for functional characterization, transcriptome analysis, and DNA sequencing analysis. Besides, students will learn soft critical skills, including critical thinking skills. These techniques will also provide a strong foundation for those students who are willing to pursue their career in four-year colleges/universities or advanced R&D laboratories. Since our biotechnology program is a research-based and peer mentoring intensive program structured to engage nontraditional students, our curriculum uses inquiry-based laboratories, hands-on instruction, and internships in world-renowned institutions to confer in-depth scientific knowledge to students.
Upon successful completion, the Associate in Science Degree in Biotechnology: Genomics & Biomanufacturing is awarded.
