Abstract: To assist Albuquerque Technical-Vocational Institute in its pursuit of an educational training program in biotechnologies, this research study was conducted to assess key elements of New Mexico’s biotechnologies industries and occupations. These elements include defining the biotechnologies industry, gathering insights and perspectives from industry officials, and analyzing important employment-related trends. The research methodology incorporated: (1) a quantitative analysis of published data on specific variables including employment, establishments, revenues, value of shipments and current and projected employment levels for key occupations; and (2) a qualitative analysis based on telephone interviews with business leaders, industry members, economic developers, and other persons knowledgeable about biotechnology. The results from these interviews are summarized. Includes tables and a bibliography. A supplemental section, Community College Biotechnology Programs, reviewed established biotechnology programs at five community colleges in other states. Each program profile contains a short description of the college; a list of requirements for the associates degree; and biology and biotechnology course descriptions.
