Career Development
Co-op / Internship

We realize the importance of practical learning opportunities and encourage MBP students to enroll in an optional internship or a co-op after they have completed the first three quarters of the program and developed a skillset that includes theoretical and practical proficiency in bioprocessing, basics of technology commercialization, understanding of the 4C’s (communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity) and the FDA regulations. MBP Assistant Director of External Relations and Career Management assists students with interview preparation and resume writing. Internship placement is not guaranteed, but our program has been successful in identifying and creating opportunities, which we share with MBP students.
