An "Option" within the College of Engineering is a prescribed set of courses that provides a concentration of specialized training in one particular field of study of the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.E.) program. Options are approved at the College level but are unique to Departments within the College, consisting of at least 15 credit units, none of which are core courses taken by all students within the Department.

This option is available to students pursuing the B.E. in Chemical Engineering program. It provides specialization in sciences and engineering courses that deal with food and biomaterial processing and biotechnology-based production.

Required Bioprocessing Electives (18 credit units)

Please consult an academic advisor for assistance in choosing electives.

The Bioprocessing option requires students to complete six electives, in addition to core Chemical Engineering courses.
