Biomanufacturing is the process of utilizing living organisms and/or biologically derived materials to produce biomolecules and material (such as vaccines, proteins, vitamins, bioplastics, and supplements) for applications in agriculture, the food and beverage industry, medicine, pharmacy, energy production and many more areas. Bioscience fundamentals concepts will also be explored.
This program provides an understanding of the biomanufacturing industry, its requirements and applications. In addition to theoretical discussions, the course provides first-hand experiments on basic, yet important laboratory techniques.
- Grades 11-12
- Successful completion of Biology at home high school as demonstrated on high school transcript
- Submission of high school transcript
- Successful completion of, or concurrent enrollment in Chemistry is strongly recommended
- Students who have successfully completed Bioscience or Biotechnology at their home high school will automatically be placed into Advanced Biomanufacturing
Number of Years to Complete this Program
1 year to complete
*Optional second year offered
Things to Consider
- Prepares students for technician-level jobs in the biomanufacturing industry as well as in more traditional medical and biological research laboratories. It also prepares for the pursuit of advanced life science studies at 2- and 4-year institutions.
