Program Description:

The Biotechnology program at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) prepares students for transferring to higher education and employment in the biotech industry. SLCC offers a Biotechnology Associate of Science degree and a Certificate of Proficiency. Classes are offered in a competency-based education format. Curriculum outlines for the program and materials for additional courses are available to view separately. 

Course Description

This course provides "an introduction to a regulated manufacturing environment" for biotechnology products and how manufacturing is overseen by the Food and Drug Administration. The course explores the production of and regulations for medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and dietary supplements. The contents are divided into eight modules. Module one explores regulations and medical devices. Topics range from medical device manufacturing in Utah to medical device classification. Module two considers quality system regulations and the quality management system. The module introduces learners to said concepts and goes into further detail on design controls, corrective and preventative actions, and more. Module three highlights document controls and types. Information on accessing this content and documentation practices are highlighted alongside other topics. Module four explores the manufacturing environment. Here, students are introduced to the lab and complete a performance assessment. Module five covers the manufacturing of DNA extraction kits. Module six introduces learners to lean manufacturing and waste. Waste solutions are provided. Module seven educates on the Kaizen and PDCA cycle. A performance assessment follows this module. Finally, module eight presents standard work documents and how to apply them to the manufacturing process. As a hybrid course, students completed lecture modules online and lab activities on-campus.
