Genentech and its local biopharmaceutical production site in Oceanside have been strong supporters of the MiraCosta College Biotechnology Program and its students. The leadership at the Oceanside site initially supported the college with the addition of its Bioprocess Technology focus in 2004 through a $250,000 grant and, since helping start this program, have continued its support through equipment and supply donations in addition to direct scholarships supporting MiraCosta students.
