Biotechnology Engineering is a research-oriented doctoral program that prepares students to develop biotechnology applications in fields such as gene therapy, protein and tissue engineering, and bioremediation.
The Biotechnology Engineering doctoral program offered through the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering is strongly research-oriented with coursework in:
The ability to manipulate the genetic content of microbial, insect, animal, and plant cells has led to a variety of commercial applications in medicine, nutrition, materials science, and the environment. New biotechnology-derived pharmaceutical products are gaining FDA approval, and the sequencing of the human genome will lead to tremendous new opportunities in disease prevention. The Biotechnology doctoral program prepares students contribute to the discipline - whether within industry, academia, and research.
Applicants to the PhD in Biotechnology Engineering program are generally expected to hold a BS or MS degree in Chemical Engineering, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, or Biology. Competitive applicants are expected to already have working knowledge of the core course content of this program (i.e., enzyme and cell growth kinetics, biochemistry and cell metabolism, molecular biology).
