Online Education

By combining distance education technologies with instruction in its state-of-the-art laboratories, BTEC extends educational opportunities to both students and working professionals located across the region, state, and country.

As part of its academic program, BTEC offers the fully online course BEC 475, Global Regulatory Affairs for Medical Products. NC State’s online learning management system provides 24/7 access to lectures, readings, interactive multimedia, and other materials and activities from any location with an Internet connection. In the future, BTEC plans to offer a number of its graduate courses online to enable full-time employees and others to further their education.

BTEC also currently offers an online course as part of its professional development program. The Fundamentals of Biomanufacturing online course provides a general overview of the production of drug substances for biological products (i.e., substances used in drug products that help prevent or treat human diseases). In addition, three additional online courses will be offered during 2021. See BTEC's Schedule of Short Courses for a list of all online courses.
