Program Information

School:Centennial College
Faculty:School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science
Degree:Diploma; Online
Field of Study:Biotechnology
Description:Centennial College's Biotechnology Fast-Track program was created for qualified college or university graduates who wish to receive their diploma in one year (two semesters). Gaining direct admission into the second year (third semester) of the two-year Biotechnology program, you are trained to work as a laboratory technician in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.

This program offers detailed practical training in microbiology and chemistry (analytical, organic and biochemistry). Laboratory techniques including aseptic technique and appropriate safety procedures are extensively highlighted. A special feature of this diploma program is its project-focused approach, with independently designed microbiology projects that enhance your problem-solving and research skills.

This course will be offered with hybrid delivery. Hybrid programs combine the best of both worlds: hands-on experience in our labs on campus, and remote access to virtualization software, plus recordings of our laboratory activities. Some courses are held in labs, but the first semester can be completed at a distance for those unable to travel. Students studying hybrid programs in Toronto will have scheduled lab activities on-campus in the fall and winter semesters. Students studying hybrid programs online will have access to new simulation software, virtualization software and recorded virtual lab demonstrations to gain in depth knowledge. If students are unable to travel to Canada, the first semester of 30 programs can be completed online (including online and hybrid options). Lab access is required to complete the Fall 2020 semester.
