Detailed Program Description

BTEC, a simulated cGMP facility, offers two masters programs: a Masters of Science in Biomanufacturing (MS - Thesis) and a Masters in Biomanufacturing (MR - Non Thesis). Both of these programs are Professional Science Masters programs that combine industry-scale biomanufacturing with MBA course work.

Students have the choice of focusing on upstream or downstream processes at a small, intermediate, and industry-scale level and must also take Global Regulatory Affairs, Protein Characterization Techniques, Industry Practicum in Influenza Vaccine and Monoclonal Antibody Manufacturing, Biocatalysis, and professional skills development courses. Students are required to complete Project Management and Strategic Management Foundations in the Poole College of Management and must also complete an industry internship between years 1 and 2.

Students interested in completing an MBA can use the credits already taken in the BTEC program and complete their MBA in just one year.
