The field of biomanufacturing is booming. In fact, right here in Massachusetts, the Boston Globe reports that hundreds of jobs in this industry remain unfilled, as the need for new hires outpaces the number of qualified workers to fill the positions. While this is a tough problem for bio companies to have, it’s a lucrative opportunity if you’re looking for a career change.
The need for skilled professionals in biomanufacturing and biotechnology isn’t slowing down, either. Companies in Boston and across the state will continue to seek candidates with a unique combination of knowledge and hands-on, laboratory training to help their businesses compete.
If you’re interested in a new career path, the world of biomanufacturing might be perfect for you. It’s a great-paying, competitive field with room for growth. Plus, you’ll help create products that help and heal.
Luckily, high-tech universities have seen this need and now offer great onboarding trainings to help you develop this in-demand set of skills. For instance, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has an entire facility dedicated to training adult learners in biotechnology and biomanufacturing, with programs offered at times that are convenient for working professionals. Their 8-week, evening certificate course on the fundamentals of biomanufacturing offers researched-based instruction plus hands-on training in their pilot-scale lab. By the end, you’ll have the skills to get your foot in the door for entry-level positions, and it only goes up from there.
