To meet industry demands for students skilled in the operation of equipment and processes that are unique to biomanufacturing, BTEC is dedicated to providing hands-on training using state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. The 77,700 gross-square-foot main facility features high-tech classrooms and laboratories with bench-scale and pilot-scale bioprocessing equipment. In addition, the BTEC Annex has approximately 5,000 gross square feet for viral processing, cell culture, and purification. The largest laboratory area is a simulated-cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practice) production facility.

BTEC's training facilities feature:

  • 7,200 gsf high-tech classrooms
  • 43,700+ gsf lab training space
  • Stainless steel bioreactors at 30 L and 300 L scales
  • Disposable bioreactors
  • Automation with next-generation distributed control architecture
  • Analytical lab
  • Downstream separation and purification processes
  • Aseptic processing operations
  • Numerous bench-scale labs to enable learning in next-generation biotechnology and biomanufacturing technologies such as animal cell and tissue culture, virus processing, protein and metabolic engineering, miniaturization, high throughput technologies, and bioanalytical methodologies
