Workforce Development Certificate

Program Description:
This program is for students who desire to acquire or upgrade their skills in the area of biotechnology. It is assumed that students will have the required background in the biological sciences and chemistry prior to entering this program. Students will be trained in the practices and procedures of biotechnology as well as in the theory behind the procedures so that they will be prepared to extrapolate present knowledge to solve problems faced in the future. There will be a heavy emphasis on a wide range of laboratory procedures. The topics of lab safety, protein isolation and separation techniques, cell culture, molecular biology and recombinant DNA, and quality control will be addressed as they apply to both a manufacturing and research environment.
