Engineering Certificate

Biotechnology: Engineering Track

The certificate program in Biotechnology is aimed at students who plan to enter the workforce within the field of biotechnology. The program is designed to complement a bachelor's or master's degree that a student is in the process of completing or has already obtained. The Engineering track prepares students to work within the research and manufacturing segments of biotechnology companies.

Although any student may enroll in the Biotechnology certificate program as long as he or she meets the prerequisites, the Engineering track integrates most smoothly with a major in Chemical Engineering.

Requirements for the Certificate in Biotechnology: Engineering Track


(17-19 credit hours)

Prerequisites: students must be either currently majoring in Chemical Engineering, or taking college course work that includes the following:

  • one year of general chemistry,
  • two years of calculus and advanced mathematics, and
  • courses in thermodynamics and material and energy balance.
