You can earn a four-year degree in biomanufacturing at a community college

Ventura County Community College District universities do a great job preparing students for rewarding careers that meet the needs of our local industrial workers. Moorpark, Oxnard and Ventura Universities actively work with our professional education program advisory boards to meet the changing needs of the industry to enable students to earn a relevant associate degree and begin their careers or transfer to a university in four years.

Moorpark College’s working partners told us that the local biotech industry has an unmet need for well-trained staff in their production teams. We quickly found a solution to meet this growing need for workers and allow the local biotech industry to thrive and grow: Moorpark College’s new biomanufacturing degree.

By way of background, in 2014 then-Governor Jerry Brown authorized the Board of Governors of California Community Colleges to establish a statewide pilot licensing program. In 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom authorized the Board of Governors to expand and extend the pilot degree program indefinitely, launching up to 30 undergraduate programs annually.
