The ability to manipulate the genetic content of microbial, insect, animal, and plant cells has led to a variety of commercial applications in medicine, nutrition, materials science, and the environment. The Biotechnology certificate program gives you the skills employers are looking for to develop today's products: biochemical process engineering principles, molecular biology practices, and state-of-the-art cloning and expression techniques.
The certificate program allows students to focus on biomedical instrumentation, biomedical optics, biomaterials/biotechnology, cellular and biomolecular engineering, and tissue engineering or other related areas of study.
Through industry-based projects and case studies, the four-course program provide students with the fundamentals and practical considerations in the field, including construction of recombinant DNA and the production of enzymes, therapeutic proteins, vaccines and small-molecule primary and secondary metabolites.
The curriculum features modern techniques for separation and purification of small and large biomolecules. In addition, production and separation case studies emphasize process economics, GMP, and QA/QC. The program offers two tracks:
New biotechnology-derived pharmaceutical products are gaining FDA approval, and the sequencing of the human genome will lead to tremendous new opportunities in disease prevention.
