BITC  1340  Quality Assurance for the Biosciences

Quality assurance principles and applications. Includes quality control and Federal Drug Administration (FDA) regulations to the biotechnology, biopharmaceutical, and biomedical device industries. Additionally, BITC 1340 Quality Assurance for the Biosciences is a course designed to introduce the student to quality principles as they apply to the biotechnology, biopharmaceutical, and the biomedical device industries. Theories and application of quality assurance and quality control will be presented and several different quality systems will be discussed such as cGMP, ISO9000, Six Sigma and Lean. This class will be focused on quality in the bioscience workplace and therefore will include many applied assignments, which include internet research in current regulations and discussion board participation.   Prerequisite/Concurrent enrollment: BIOL 1415 or consent of Instructor.  3 credit hours.  (W)
