Biotechnology Skill Standards


Shoreline is highly regarded for the college's work on biotechnology skill standards.  In 2000, Shoreline worked with local industry to develop a widely-used set of skill standards. These skill standards were updated in 2007, together with Shoreline's Industry Advisory Committee.  

The updated skill standards cover three major clusters of biotechnology-related careers:

  1. Research and Development
  2. Regulatory Affairs
  3. Manufacturing
