Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute will host open houses and information sessions next week for the new biopharmaceutical technology program with three opportunities for prospective students to learn more about the program and tour the facilities.

The events are scheduled for Tuesday, September 20 at 10 am and 5 pm and Saturday, September 24 at 10 am in Building J on the Caldwell Campus in Hudson. Prospective students are invited to attend any session, each of which will include tours of the new biopharmaceutical labs, classrooms, and simulated clean rooms.

CCC&TI is only the second community college in the state to offer an Associate of Applied Science in Biopharmaceutical Technology degree, and the only one west of Raleigh to offer it. The program was added in 2020 in response to the growing pharmaceutical industry in Caldwell County and its need for workers.

The program offers a comprehensive bioprocessing curriculum that includes hands-on learning in a clean room and state-of-the-art laboratory. CCC&TI’s biopharmaceutical clean room has the technology to facilitate simulated drug development and contract manufacturing. The program is also supported by an active advisory board of professionals in the field.

During the events, prospective students can tour the biopharmaceutical cleanroom lab and hear from Caridad Smith, Director of CCC&TI’s Biopharmaceutical Technology Program. Smith will provide details on the university’s training and manufacturing capabilities and share information on internship opportunities, apprenticeships and job openings in the biopharmaceutical/pharmaceutical and other life sciences industries.

The Biopharmaceutical Technology Program and information sessions will be held in the CCC&TI Career Center (Building J). For more information or to RSVP for one of the information sessions, visit www.cccti.edu/BioPharm.
