Biotechnology

State-Of-The-Art Careers
Start Here

What You'll Learn

Biotechnology encompasses a wide range of fields that make beneficial products for humans, society, and animals. In the last few decades, we have seen remarkable advances in biotechnology, including new diagnostic procedures for diseases such as cancer, genetic alterations of plants and animals, production of bacteria that clean up toxic waste, design of new medical devices, and development of medications to prevent and treat infections.

Students in the Biotechnology program at Ivy Tech learn the most essential skills and background information that employers in the sector expect their workers to have. This means that our students are primed for getting hired and succeeding in entry-level positions (or above) anywhere in this in-demand, high-wage field.

The program is taught by instructors with real-world experience and students spend a significant amount of hands-on class time in state-of-the-art laboratories.

Transfer Options

Graduates with an Associate of Science (AS) or Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Biotechnology can transfer to select four-year universities and earn a bachelor’s degree in biotechnology or biology. The Associate of Science (AS) is best suited for transferring since it includes general education courses that many four-year universities require, but we have also had graduates of the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) program successfully continue their education after Ivy Tech with the ability to transfer many credits.

Career Options

A career in Biotechnology could be a great fit if you’re inspired to do meaningful work and help create therapies and products that can cure disease. Your degree can lead to a career in a variety of life science and manufacturing settings, including research, pharmaceuticals, genomics, quality control, and manufacturing. Typical jobs include:

  • Laboratory Technician
  • Quality Control Technician
  • Research Associate
  • Quality Assurance Associate
  • Manufacturing Associate
  • Process Development Associate
  • Calibration Technician
  • Documentation Technician
  • Inspector
  • Production Technician
  • Regulatory Affairs Clerk or Technician
  • Quality Investigator

  • The Regulatory Affairs short-term certificate can be achieved in 1-2 semesters, or one year, and is eligible for financial aid.

    What is Regulatory Affairs?

    Regulatory Affairs professionals help make safe and effective healthcare products available worldwide, ensure regulatory compliance, prepare submissions, and participate in quality assurance. All bioscience companies are in need of regulatory affairs professionals for their expertise in deciding the best regulatory pathway for a new or modified medical product, and to serve as the go-to person in a company to interact with the governing regulatory agency, e.g., Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    What You’ll Learn

    The Regulatory Affairs short-term certificate prepares students for entry level careers associated with regulatory affairs. It is designed to give students the necessary skills, knowledge, and abilities to make an immediate positive contribution to any regulatory affairs division. Courses were developed using the regulatory affairs job skill set standards identified by the Community College Consortium for Bioscience Credentials (c3bc). This national group spent a number of years working with industry partners to identify the skills and knowledge required for individuals in this field.

    Topics covered in this certificate include:

    • FDA structure, Food & Drug Law, selected Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 21 and 45 that govern medicinal products design, development, manufacturing, marketing, and post-marketing surveillance reporting
    • The application process for drugs (Investigational New Drug (IND) & New Drug Application (NDA), Biologics License Application (BLA), medical devices (Investigational Device Exemption (IDE), Premarket Notification (510K), & Premarket Application (PMA)), and combo-devices
    • Regulatory documentation requirements for pre-clinical, clinical, and postmarketing
    • Pharmacovigilance
    • Medical device reporting
    • ISO and ICH standards

    Students completing the certificate are prepared to take the U.S. Regulatory Affairs Certificate (RAC) exam later in their careers through the use of Regulatory Affairs Professional Society (RAPS) US RAC type questions.

Prerequisite Courses for Biotechnology

While some courses within the biotechnology program require prerequisites, college-ready students can get started in the program in their first semester. By following the posted completion guide for the student’s campus, the student will take all prerequisite courses in time for when they are needed.

No Expiration of Credits

There is no expiration date for course credits that were earned in previous years from Ivy Tech Community College.

Transfer Credit for Prerequisite Courses

Prerequisite courses completed at colleges other than Ivy Tech will only be considered for general education selection points if transfer credit has been awarded and courses appear on the Ivy Tech transcript prior to the application deadline.

TR grades are not recognized by the online application. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that transfer credit has been awarded and that TR grades are updated to transfer letter grades (TA, TB, TC) on their Ivy Tech transcript.

It is recommended that college transcripts be submitted to the Registrar’s office for evaluation and transfer credit at least 4 weeks prior to the program application deadline to ensure adequate time for processing.

Class Formats

Courses for each of the associate degree programs are offered in a variety of formats. When possible, lectures are delivered in scheduled virtual, Zoom-based or Learn Anywhere (Hybrid based on your preference) formats. Labs meet in-person in order to provide essential hands-on training.

Certificate courses are mostly offered virtually (synchronous) or online (asynchronous), except for a course or two that has an in-person lab component.

Sample Courses

  • BIOT102: Survey of Good Manufacturing Practices – This lecture-based course is often offered virtually and introduces students to the basics of manufacturing within the biotechnology industry. Students learn about the Food and Drug Administration and how it regulates the work environment.
  • BIOT103: Survey of Safety and Regulatory Compliance – This lecture-based course is often offered virtually and provides an overview of safety procedures and the various agencies that regulate operations in the biotechnology industry. As part of this course, students earn the OSHA 10 general industry certification.
  • BIOT201: Cell Culture and Cellular Processes – This course includes a lecture as well as an in-person lab. It covers cell structure and function, as well as techniques for working with prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell cultures in the biotechnology industry.
  • BIOT279: Capstone in Biotechnology – This course is designed to evaluate students’ understanding of the concepts and skills learned in the AS and AAS programs before graduation. In addition to completing a technical outcomes exam, the course helps to prepare students for career planning, applying and interviewing for positions, and considering ethical issues in the field.

How to Apply for the Biotechnology Program

1) Complete the Online Application

Students interested in the Biotechnology Program can apply through Ivy Tech's standard online application. Nothing beyond your basic information is necessary to apply. If you have transcripts, you will be able to submit them for review after you apply.

While completing the application, select the following:

  • Campus of Interest: Bloomington or Indianapolis
  • Area of Study: Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics

2) Contact the Local Program Chair

Once you submit your online application, you should also contact the Bloomington Program Chair for the AAS degree and short-term certificates, or the Indianapolis Program Chair for the AAS and the AS degrees, so they can help facilitate your entry into the program.

Apply Now   Contact the Program Chair

After You Apply

Your application will be processed in a couple of business days, after which the Admission Office will contact you via the email you provided on the application. This email will include your Ivy Tech student ID and username if you don’t already have one. Using this information, you can set up your MyIvy account to submit transcripts or complete knowledge assessments.

You will also need to meet with an advisor to register for your first classes. This process can take a couple of weeks; however, if you contact your local Program Chair, they can be a great resource and help ensure that you get the help you need to get started in the program.
