Schedule of Short Courses

The biomanufacturing industry grows and changes rapidly from year to year, creating significant educational demands on our workforce. BTEC is committed to providing updated, cutting-edge short courses to workers who are grounded in the industry but may not be positioned to take advantage of new developments in the field.

Click any course title below to learn more and download a detailed course outline. You can also download a printable, chronological version of the 2017 schedule (PDF). Be sure to note BTEC's Professional Certificate in Biomanufacturing Science. Courses eligible for the certificate are identified with one or more of the following symbols:
