Biocon Academy partners with Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani - a leading Institute of Higher Education and a deemed University under section 3 of the UGC act, to deliver a first of its kind ‘Certificate Program in Applied Industrial Microbiology’.
The Program is aimed at improving the employability prospects of fresh science and pharmacy graduates specialized in microbiology as well as enhancing the skills of experienced scientific talent. It provides deep understanding of various aspects of Microbiology through an Intensive curriculum comprising 8 modules, delivered by the renowned faculty from BITS. The live experiments at the state-of-the-art Quality Control Labs of Biocon further accentuates the learning of the students.
Microbiological Quality is one of the Critical Quality Parameter (CQP) of industrial biotechnology, pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage manufacturing and in vitro diagnostic (IVD) industries. It comprises of critical components viz. Checking quality of raw material, in-process material, utilities, environment personal and Quality Control of finished products, thereby finding application in varied industries such as Biopharmaceuticals, Medical Devices, vitro diagnostic (IVD) , Pharmaceuticals, Food Production & Safety, Testing Laboratories, Bio-agriculture, Bio-industrial, Contract Research etc.
Essentially, the trained microbiologists plays a very important role in different industries and thus, offers immense career opportunities in research and development and in the manufacturing processes of Biomolecules, Pharmaceuticals, Medical Devices, and other industrial segments of relevance.
With a customised curriculum, modules encompass vast topics like Environmental Monitoring, Process Monitoring from GMP perspective, Food and Diagnostic microbiology etc. This course is aimed at providing high end, specific training to the microbiologists, biotechnologists and pharmacists, to make them readily employable and reduce the time taken by the industry to train them on these applications.
