- Bachelor of Science
Do you want to change the medical field? Do you want to work in a field that is a cross between engineering and medicine? Or do you want to invent the next biofuel to power tomorrow? Then biochemical engineering is your new home. You and your peers can pave the way to a healthier and more efficient tomorrow when you join the biochemical engineering program.
As a biochemical engineering major, you will begin your study with an extensive series of foundation courses in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics. At the upper division level, you will take advanced courses in specific topics in biochemical and chemical engineering. These courses will include fundamental process engineering courses (transport phenomena, thermodynamics, kinetics, process control, engineering economics) as well as specific courses in bioreactors, bioseparations, biotechnology facility design, regulatory compliance, technoeconomic analysis and biochemical engineering laboratory.
