Biotechnical Institute of Maryland and The Maryland Tech Connection

The Biotechnical Institute (BTI) was founded to fill a need for specialty training of entry-level biotechnicians for employment in Maryland’s rapidly expanding biotechnology industry. BTI provides tuition-free, basic laboratory training to ambitious, unemployed and under-employed Maryland residents.

The Maryland Tech Connection (MTC) is an innovative industry-driven initiative with a coalition of 59 companies focused on workforce, educational and economic development. MTC also partners with other non-profit organizations working to grow the IT, Cybersecurity and Bioscience industries throughout the state and to encourage more Maryland residents to secure and retain middle and high skilled positions in those sectors.
