The Biological Engineering Concentration is designed to allow chemical engineering majors to focus their elective courses on biochemical and biological engineering-related topics. The Concentration is designed to fit into the main Chemical Engineering curriculum by using elective courses and does not add additional course requirements for graduation.

To complete the Biological Engineering Concentration, students must complete a minimum of 15 credit hours (3 biochemistry credit hours plus 12 elective credit hours) from the approved course list below.

Required (Must complete one of the following courses) Hours
CHE 445 or Introduction to Biochemical Engineering 3
CHE 446 Honors Introduction to Biochemical Engineering

CH 461 Biochemistry I 3
BSC 450 Fundamentals of Biochemistry 3

If a student selects CH 461 or BSC 450 for the biochemistry requirement, they cannot count the other course, but may count CHE 445/446 as an elective course.
