Specialization in Biological Engineering - Chemical Engineering Program Guide

04/04/05 BGL, 4/2/07 RPH

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. Biological Systems and Applications (4 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.  There are two scenarios for completing this specialization. 

Scenario 1: Biological Systems and Applications, one semester of bio-related junior / senior clinic, 6 s.h. of approved electives.

Scenario 2: Biological Systems and Applications, two semesters of bio-related junior / senior clinics, 4 s.h. of approved electives.
