Brief Summary of ProposalThe Chemical Engineering Department proposes to offer a Biotechnology Specialization Certificate to undergraduate students in Chemical Engineering. The objective of the certificate is to prepare students for graduate study in the biochemical and/or biotechnology fields. Students will take three biology courses (Principles of Biology I and II and either Cell and Molecular Biology or Microbiology) instead of the current requirements of Physical Chemistry I and II and Material Science. Students will select Biochemistry as their advanced chemistry elective. Students will select their three credits of engineering elective and six credits of design electives from a diverse set of courses currently offered in Chemical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering. No courses new to University offering are required for this certificate.
