DEPARTMENT OF Chemical Engineering
Pursue an exciting path in biopharmaceuticals — manufacturing drugs, vaccines, and therapies for diseases and health.
Be part of the green revolution happening within the bioeconomy industries. The Bachelor of Science degree in Bioprocess Engineering prepares students for an exciting career where they can make an impact bringing new biologically based drugs or pharmaceutical therapies to the market.
Our courses combine a solid foundation with specialization.
Students gain an engineering foundation — built on math, chemistry, physics, and biology — and learn about the fundamentals of engineering, including mechanics, fluid mechanics, transport phenomena, thermodynamics, and process control. Specialized courses include bioreaction engineering, biocatalysis, bioseparations, and bioprocess design. ESF offers a variety of technical electives.
Engage in cutting-edge research.
Students gain valuable experience through a capstone design experience in which they work on significant problems in the design and implementation of new technologies. Since bioprocess engineering engages students in a high technology field, research experience at an industrial or academic laboratories or an internship with industry is a requirement.
Choose your specialty.
In addition to learning basic principals in bioprocess engineering, students can specialize in biocatalysis, biomaterials, biofuels, and other cutting-edge technologies.
Pursue an exciting career path.
Graduates are well prepared for a career in which they can make an impact, using biological materials to create a variety of products, from pharmaceutical to agricultural.
