Summary: Minor in Biochemical Engineering
A minor in biochemical engineering is open to all students in the University with prerequisite
calculus, chemistry, and biology courses. The minor is particularly designed for majors in
chemical engineering, biology, chemistry, or health science fields. Students are required to take
the courses listed below which includes an interdisciplinary biochemical engineering (capstone)
design project. Course work from chemistry and biology is combined with chemical engineering
courses as related to biochemical engineering.
For chemical engineering majors, the additional coursework for the biochemical engineering
minor are 3 required biology courses (BIOL 1111/2, BIOL 2301/2, BIOL 2323; see *below) and
1 required chemical engineering elective (CHME 5630; see * below). These 4 courses substitute
for 3 of the 4 available general electives and for the 1 available chemical engineering elective in
the chemical engineering curriculum.
