Biotechnology is broadly defined as using living organisms, or products of living organisms, to improve life, to make a product, or to solve a problem. This field is one of the most rapidly changing areas of science. HCC's Biotechnology Program is designed to prepare students for entry-level technician positions in biomedical, research, and industrial laboratory areas. Depending on a person’s academic background and work experience, the Biotechnology technician-in-training may complete the one-year biotechnology certificate (22 credits) or the two-year A.A.S. degree in biotechnology (64 credits).
