Biopharmaceutical Engineering Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Degree

The biopharmaceutical field is a continually changing industry that has classically been separated into upstream (drug formulation and development process) and downstream (process and manufacturing) components, with chemical engineering playing a critical role in both areas. The future of this field will depend upon innovative new engineers who are able to easily communicate with people on either side. The goal of this program is to provide students a cohesive view of basic biopharmaceutical principles, so that they can more readily apply their chemical engineering skills to this diverse discipline.

Applying to the Program

Students apply to the program during the fall semester of their sophomore year. The application process includes an online form, a written statement on career goals and an interview with two members of the faculty of record. In order for students to be admitted, they must have at least a 3.3 GPA and receive a B or better in CME 200 . after this time, all students enrolled in the program meet once a semester with the director of the program or a faculty of record to assess progress, aid in course selection and provide guidance with career goals.
