Providing a full spectrum of training for
biomanufacturing and pharmaceutical production
Facility Engineers participate in and/or oversee the design, construction, operation, troubleshooting, and/or maintenance of facilities related systems (compressed gasses, RODI, WFI and clean steam) and building utility systems (plant steam, HVAC, exhaust, hot water heating, humidification, and plant water). A BS degree in an engineering discipline is typically required.
Additional training, such as the courses offered at BTEC at NC State University leading to an undergraduate certificate, minor, or post-baccalaureate certificate in biomanufacturing is often desired. Example short courses offered at NC State include Bioreactors for Cell Culture, Fermentation Engineering, and Downstream Biopharmaceutical Process Development.
