Quality Control Microbiology Certificate - This certificate in quality control microbiology and biology is designed to prepare students for careers in fields such as biotechnology, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biologicals, food safety, biomanufacturing, and testing laboratories. Quality control (testing finished products) and quality assurance (checking quality during production) both serve essential roles in industrial biotechnology and pharmaceutical manufacturing. This certificate would prepare the student for a job as a quality control or quality assurance technician, responsible for setting up periodic testing and analysis during both the research and development and the manufacturing processes of biomolecules, pharmaceuticals, or medical devices. This certificate emphasizes testing for microbiological contamination or biological formulation of a product.
