Note: The Advanced Certificate Program is accepting applications (CSU Mentor). The deadline for submission is August 1 for the Fall and November 1 for the Spring.
The BQS M.S. degree program is not accepting applications at this time, but if there is enough student interest, the M.S. degree could be reinstated as early as Fall 2012.
Additionally, introductory BQS classes are scheduled to start in August (see Schedule of Courses). These classes can be transferred into the Advanced Certificate Program.
This degree program provides a comprehensive background in quality systems principles and practices for the development, testing and manufacture of pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and medical device products with the additional training necessary for compliance with regulatory requirements.
The degree offering focuses on principles of quality control and quality assurance that support compliance with the laws and regulations imposed by the Federal government, especially the Food and Drug Administration, related to drug discovery, development, testing, and manufacture of products for commercial distribution. The degree program will provide students with detailed knowledge and understanding of current practices and regulations and their practical application to the development and commercialization of drug, biologics, and medical device products. Also incorporated into the degree program are business courses that provide students with communication and management skills essential for the successful QA/QC professional in an industry work environment.
Understanding of industry specific quality assurance and control requirements must be integrated with knowledge of applicable federal laws and regulations pertaining to the testing of biomedical products. Consequently, a large proportion of program instructors are industry professionals with relevant experience in the biomedical industries.
