Holland College’s Bioscience Technology program has received a Gold Program Excellence Award from Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan). The award recognizes a program that is innovative, portable, sustainable, and effective.
CICan presents eight awards annually to celebrate the contributions of individuals and highlight the role colleges and institutions play in Canada’s social, cultural and economic development. The awards are distributed in partnership with TD Insurance. Usually the awards are presented during the organization’s national conference, but due to the pandemic, they were announced online earlier this week.
Holland College’s two-year Bioscience Technology program is the only one of its kind in the region and has strong ties with local and regional members of the biotechnology and bioscience industry. Students participate in six weeks of on the job training and complete an independent research project.
