The New Hampshire Biotechnology Education and Training (NH BET) Center was established at NHCTC in 1994. Three Biotechnology programs are offered. Common to the Biotechnology programs are two hands-on cornerstone courses, Discovery Research and Biomanufacturing. These are offered in a state-of-the-industry facility where students learn the skills, knowledge and attributes of the biotech industry. Most graduates are found at Biomanufacturing companies with jobs in Cell Culture, Purification, Quality Control Biochemistry, Quality Control Microbiology, Quality Assurance, Validation, and Process Development. The A.S. degree program is transferable to 4 year colleges. The Center also houses the Northeast Region of Bio-Link, the Center of Expertise in Biomanufacturing and the Northeast Biomanufacturing Center and Collaborative. The Center trains teachers and faculty in hands-on Biotechnology and incumbent workers through the NortheastBiomanufacturing Institute. Thirty 2005-2006 graduates are working in biomanufacturing at the following companies: Lonza, Wyeth, Amgen (RI and CA), GlycoFi (Merck), Milllipore, BioServe (CA), BiogenIdec, and Perkin Elmer Life Science.
