WASHINGTON, -  Today, The Manufacturing Institute released the fifth Community College Consortium for Bioscience Credentials (c3bc) spotlight on Austin Community College (ACC).

The c3bc is a multistate consortium of 12 community colleges engaged in an educational and training initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Labor under grant TC- 23761-12-60-A-37. Under the c3bc, 12 Community Colleges nationwide coordinate to support strategies to assist grant participants to obtain employment in high-wage, high-skill occupations, such as biotechnology, biomanufacturing, and medical devices.

As part of the Community College Consortium for Bioscience Credentials (c3bc), ACC developed its Biotechnology program, a two-year program with 16-week courses, in which students come out with an Advanced Technician Certificate, an associate’s degree, or a Biotechnology Certificate. A key asset to this program is the required internship, which students take at the end of their first year, and has proven to be extremely valuable to local companies.
