Chemistry

Chemical Engineering (Biochemical)

The biochemical emphasis builds on the core Chemical Engineering curriculum to create expertise in chemical reactions associated with biological processes. Students achieving this emphasis area will be exposed to basic concepts of living systems, metabolism, biological polymers, hormones, and basic genetics through courses in biology and biochemistry, as well as biomass, enzyme, yeast, and other biochemical processes, including the associated industrial operations. Students completing this emphasis will be well-poised for careers in biomedical engineering, human or veterinary medicine, pharmaceuticals, and agricultural/food engineering. Students will also be in a strong position to pursue graduate degrees in biological or biomedical engineering, dentistry, or human or veterinary medicine.
