Specialization in Biological Engineering - Chemical Engineering Program Guide


Earning a specialization in biological engineering can be accomplished through a focused selection of junior / senior clinic projects and chemical engineering electives.  There are three basic components to earning a specialization in biological engineering

            A. BIOL 01211 Biology for Chemical Engineers (3 s.h.)

            B. Bio-related Junior / Senior Clinic projects (2 - 4 s.h.)

            C. Bio-related electives from approved list (4 – 6 s.h.)

These three components will guide you towards the 12 s.h. of courses required for the biological engineering specialization.
