Industrial Microscopy Specialization
The Industrial Microscopy Specialization is a program of study for scientists who are currently employed in a materials sciences laboratory looking to expand their microscopy skills as they relate to materials analysis, or for those who are interested in pursuing a career in industrial microscopy.
The program consists of attending four standard Hooke College of Applied Sciences (HCAS) courses with hands-on instruction, each followed by 40 hours of practicum study characterizing unknown samples. Upon successful completion of each course and practicum, students who receive a grade of 90% or better will be issued a certificate of completion for each course.
Custom Microscopy Courses
Let us collaborate with you to design a custom course. Depending on the level of customization required and the number of employees to be trained, custom training solutions can often be more cost effective than sending the same individuals to an open enrollment microscopy course. As an added bonus, learning activities built into the courses provide great team-building opportunities.

Professional Development Partnerships
Hooke College of Applied Sciences has partnered with The Center for Professional Advancement (CfPA) to offer technical training and professional development opportunities that include expert instruction, dynamic lectures, and hand-on learning for those in the Pharmaceutical, Biotechnology, Medical Device, Chemical Engineering and Cosmetics industries.
Hooke College of Applied Sciences will be hosting CfPA in Westmont, IL for the March 25, 26, and 27, 2019 Sterile Products: Formulation, Manufacture and Quality Assurance course.
This course provides an appreciation and general understanding of the overall contemporary state of science and technology associated with the design, development and manufacturing of sterile drug dosage forms. Emphasis will be oriented toward formulation development and product manufacture of quality sterile dosage forms that meet or exceed expected good manufacturing practice requirements.
Hands-on microscopy demonstrations and lecture by The McCrone Group on the use of microscopes involving sterile filters and the examination of particulates.
