The Blinn College District Biotechnology Laboratory Sciences Programs are perfect for students who are interested in a laboratory-based career in therapeutics manufacturing. Students can learn the skills they need to begin their career with a one-year Level 2 Certificate or a two-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree.
In addition to preparing students for a wide range of career opportunities, students who complete the program can apply their credits toward a four-year Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Biotechnology. Students who already hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree can complete a one-year Advanced Technical Certificate (ATC), qualifying them for employment in the pharmaceutical industry.
Courses teach basic laboratory skills, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations, and good manufacturing practices (GMPs), preparing them for employment in regulated environments. Students also have opportunities to meet industry leaders and tour local biotechnology facilities while enrolled in this program.
