The three-year Biotechnology - Advanced Ontario College Advanced Diploma program gives you a strong overview of the science that drives biotechnology. With a mix of laboratory and theory courses, you learn about:

  • Cellular and molecular biology
  • Microbiology and tissue culture
  • Chemistry, biochemistry, and analytical instrumentation
  • Biochemical engineering, and
  • Quality systems for professional labs and manufacturing environments

As a student, you have the opportunity to carry out experiments and use state-of-the-art laboratory instruments and tools throughout the program. You will meet alumni, and have the opportunity to attend industry talks and professional networking events.

You have the opportunity to work with government and industry professionals through optional field placements or through participation in industry-aligned applied research projects.

Students also have the option to gain real-world experience through a paid co-operative education (co-op) work term (see Additional Information for more details). Please note that places in the co-op work term are subject to availability and academic eligibility. Please note admission to the co-op program does not guarantee a co-op placement.

Graduates of this program can pursue careers as lab technologists or analysts in biotechnology, health, agriculture, and environmental fields. Graduates may seek employment in the production and testing of medical devices, the manufacture of pharmaceuticals and biologics, and the production and testing of food/beverage products.
