If you are interested in Biological Sciences as well as Engineering, the Bioprocess Engineering minor is worth considering as there is a rapidly increasing demand for Engineering graduates with an appreciation and knowledge of biological sciences.
Bioprocess Engineering is about using biology for sustainable and more effective processes and for the design of better products such as medicines and vaccines, beverages, vitamins, dairy products, detergents, foods and clean water. This minor will help you to create an interesting and diverse career path in rapidly evolving industries.
- UC is ranked in the top 250 universities in the world for Chemical Engineering (QS World University Rankings by Subject, 2017).
- Students studying towards the Bioprocess Engineering minor alongside Chemical and Process Engineering increase their knowledge of both engineering processes and biology fields for a wider range of career pathways.
- See the Engineering subject page for a host of other reasons why UC's College of Engineering is a world-class destination for engineering studies.
Note: Students must also meet the requirements for the Chemical and Process Engineering major.
There is an increasing demand for Engineering graduates with an appreciation and knowledge of biological sciences. The manufacture of new materials and many pharmaceutical and healthcare products, including medicines and vaccines, relies upon the application of biology to industrial processes.
Examples of industry products and processes using biological engineering include biodegradable plastics, biological waste treatment for water and gas cleaning, bio-organic chemistry in pharmaceuticals, and creating sustainable biofuels.
