What is STUDENTfacturED®?

The STUDENTfacturED® organization is a real manufacturing-centered company run by students. The company manufactures biotechnology supplies to sell to college and local high school instructors. Biomanufacturing Program staff and faculty provide the necessary technical expertise to establish a ‘regulated’ manufacturing environment (i.e. scientific/technical methods and good manufacturing practices). Both staff and student participants benefit from this unique biotechnology/business enterprise and learning community.

STUDENTfacturED® offers a mentored, supportive, real-world working and learning business enterprise environment. It allows students to practice concepts and skills acquired through accompanying coursework and take advantage of educational benefits gained through project-based learning.

This training strategy is especially important to the successful and effective comprehension of quality systems and FDA regulations as they relate to the biotech manufacturing industry. The goal of the STUDENTfacturED® enterprise is to prepare students, using contextual and practical training, for jobs in biotech manufacturing companies.

STUDENTfacturED® is sustained through profits generated by the sale of STUDENTfacturED® products to high school teachers and other SLCC departments.
