An international leader in educating and training in biomanufacturing and bioprocessing
The BTEC academic program includes many components: stand-alone courses, degree courses, minors in biomanufacturing (undergraduate, graduate), several Certificates in biomanufacturing (UCP, Post-Bac, GCP), Master of Biomanufacturing, and Master of Science in Biomanufacturing degrees. In addition, two BS degree programs (see the Related Programs), the Bioprocessing Science program (curriculum) and the Biomanufacturing Sciences Concentration in Chemical Engineering (curriculum) are designed to utilize the physical resourses and technical expertise that are part of BTEC in a significant way. Descriptions of the degree programs can be found in their respective sections, reached through the links on the left, the sections listed above, or from the titles of the following summaries.
BTEC undergraduate programs include both non-degree and degree options. The non-degree options include a University Certificate, an Undergraduate Minor, and a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate—all in Biomanufacturing. Completion of each of the three options is acknowledged on an NC State transcript.
The suite of BTEC graduate programs is a work in progress. These programs will eventually include a Master of Biomanufacturing (Option B, PSM), a Master of Science in Biomanufacturing (thesis), Graduate Certificates, and a graduate minor.
Persons who have completed course prerequisites may enroll for courses on a stand-alone basis as non-degree students. Persons with appropriate professional experience may also enroll for stand-alone courses with consent of the instructor.
