Bachelor of Science in Biomanufacturing

The Bachelor’s Degree in Biomanufacturing builds upon the Associate Degree in Biotechnology, allowing students who complete the associate degree or equivalent coursework from other colleges to enter as juniors and earn a baccalaureate degree.

This program develops the skills, abilities, and knowledge that students need to work in the unique environment of biological production. It emphasizes the applied, quantitative analysis of biomanufacturing process design and performance to prepare students for employment in technical or quality positions in the manufacturing sector of the biotechnology industry, which includes biotherapeutics, diagnostics, supplies and services, and industrial products.
