This one-year Post-Graduate Certificate program was developed to provide university Bachelor of Science graduates with extensive hands-on experience in the field of Bioscience.
The post-graduate certificate in Bioscience Technology offers practical and applied courses from our two-year Bioscience Technology program. The hands-on training you receive in our laboratories compliments the theoretical science courses from your BSc. It is designed for students interested in obtaining rigorous and broad training in biotechnology for a career in the bioscience sector. It can also enhance your access to post-graduate opportunities such as Master's Degree programs.
Gain Extensive Lab-based Training
Students receive a combination of lab-based instruction and on-the-job training and complete an independent research project on a topic of their choice. Students learn a variety of practical skills, including natural product extraction, fermentation, and bacterial and mammalian cell culture techniques.
The Bioscience Technology program at Holland College is very closely associated with the bioscience industry on PEI and in the other Maritime Provinces. This gives students access to amazing training opportunities and work placements.
Industry Certifications and Recognition
The Bioscience Technology program is a CTAB (Canadian Technology Accreditation Board) nationally accredited program at the technologist level.
National program accreditation involves an independent team of certified professionals performing an extensive audit, which provides graduates and employers confidence the program meets the educational standards of Canada's engineering technology and applied science profession.
Graduating from a nationally accredited program creates an expedited path to becoming a certified professional with provincial certifying bodies in Canada.
In 2020 Bioscience Technology was a Recipient of the Gold Program Excellence Award from Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan).
