Recent advances in DNA sequencing, DNA synthesis and analytical technologies has enabled an in depth characterization and engineering of biological systems paving the way for their use in manufacturing a range of products from renewable fuels and chemicals, bio-products to advanced diagnostics and therapeutics for medical applications.
This emphasis in Biomanufacturing aims to prepare students to understand and engineer innovative technologies from developing organs on a chip to engineering protein for various applications in medicine, fuels, chemicals, environmental biotechnology and nutrition.
Students who complete this emphasis will have it noted on their transcript. Students may double-count a maximum of one (0.5 FCE) course towards any ChE emphasis, or towards any other emphasis in the Faculty.
MEng students must successfully complete any four half courses (2.0 full-course equivalents [FCEs]) from the following list:
|Course code||Course name|
|CHE1125H||Modeling & Optimization in Biochemical Networks|
