O'Connor, Kim C.
Chemical Engineering Education, v39 n2 Spr 2005
There is a growing need for a workforce that can apply engineering principles to molecular based discovery and product development in the biological sciences. To this end, Tulane University established a degree program that incorporates molecular and cellular biology into the chemical engineering curriculum. In celebration of the tenth anniversary of its founding, the program is described as a reference for chemical engineering departments to address the demand for interdisciplinary training of graduate and undergraduate students.
