As one of the top three bioprocess-manufacturing regions in the United States, North Carolina is challenged to meet the personnel needs of its growing biomanufacturing industry. North Carolina's new Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC) at North Carolina State Universityis ensuring that, as the industry grows, the state continues to educate and grow a job-ready workforce. Working with funds from the Golden LEAF Foundation and in partnership with innovative programs, including BRITE at North Carolina Central University and the North Carolina Community College System's BioNetwork, and industry collaborators, BTEC will expose students to the only curricula in the country that offer degree programs utilizing large-scale, current good manufacturing practices (cGMP)-simulated applied biotechnology.
