In response to the growing need for biomanufacturing technicians in Southern California, BIOCOM (an industry association representing over 1500 companies in California) and three CSU campuses (CSULB, CSUF, and Cal State LA) have joined together to develop a new Biomanufacturing Technician program.
This program is designed to prepare you for an entry-level position in the biomanufacturing, biotechnology, and biopharmaceutical industries. By completing three 40-hour modules, you will develop a theoretical and experiential knowledge of biomanufacturing including various state-of-the-art techniques and processes, instrumentation used in biomanufacturing industries, research and discovery, and process development?.
Upon successful completion of the 120-hour CSU program, students be awarded digital badges for each of the three courses and the entire Biomanufacturing Technician Program.
