The Biotechnology Program is a partnership between the Dane County School Consortium and the Biopharmaceutical Technology Center Institute (BTCI). The program offers high school juniors and seniors an intensive work and technical training experience in the biotechnology field.
Students will work in bioscience/biotechnology settings. There they will acquire basic skills pertinent to lab work and techniques in the first year along with the core employability and safety skills. In the second year, students will further develop testing skills and become proficient in a variety of bioscience tests and applications dependent on their worksite setting.
