Biotechnology Programs

Biotechnology is best defined as the use of living systems and organisms to develop or make useful products.  Here at Johnston Community College, it is our goal to train tomorrow's workforce in the biotechnology field.  Within Johnston County, there are major biomanufacturing and pharmaceutical industries; including Grifols, and Novo Nordisk.

Our department is proud to offer training that will prepare individuals for high tech, well-paying jobs in the biotechnology sector. We offer a variety of courses and an associate degree curriculum program to meet the growing needs of our diverse community. Our state-of-the-art facilities and highly skilled faculty have made our students feel as though they are working in the biotechnology industry while in the classroom. We have been featured in magazines, television specials, online articles, and newspapers across the state. We have national and international visitors here every year to meet with us about the training we provide.
