Biomolecular Engineering is a broad, interdisciplinary field with its main goal of engineering value-added biomolecules and biomolecular systems for applications in medical, chemical, agricultural and food industries. Its practice ranges from fundamental study of biomolecules and biomolecular systems to the design of cellular factories and artificial organs. The Biomolecular Engineering minor is designed to better prepare non-chemical engineering students for careers in the food, pharmaceutical, personal care, and biotechnology industries. This minor is not open to students majoring in chemical engineering. Those students should instead take the biomolecular engineering concentration if they are interested in biomolecular engineering coursework.
Students may fulfill the requirements for a minor in biomolecular engineering by completing the following course sequence. For further information, please contact the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
|MCB 450||Introductory Biochemistry||3|
|CHBE 221||Principles of CHE||3|
|CHEM 232||Elementary Organic Chemistry I||3|
|Biomolecular Engineering Electives 1||9|
|Technical Electives 2||3|
Students must take at least three "Biomolecular Engineering" courses offered by the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (for example, including CHBE 471, CHBE 472, CHBE 473, and CHBE 474). Students may obtain a current list of courses that may be used to satisfy this requirement in Room 99 RAL.
