As home to Genentech and several other large biotechnology companies, it should be no surprise that Vacaville is building its reputation as a hub for the growing industry of biotech. In fact, Solano Community College’s Vacaville campus and its adjoining 300 acres for planned expansion were given the name California Biomanufacturing Center last fall.
With this growing expansion of the biotech industry comes the need for more jobs. As SCC is one of the few community colleges to offer bachelor’s degrees in biotechnology and bio manufacturing, it is continuing to ensure students are on a steady career path through its 10-week Biotechnology Boot Camp.
