An Introductory Course in Bioengineering and Biotechnology for Chemical Engineering Sophomores
O'Connor, Kim C.
Chemical Engineering Education, v41 n4 p247-252 Fall 2007
Advances in the biological sciences necessitate the training of chemical engineers to translate these fundamental discoveries into applications that will benefit society. Accordingly, Tulane University revised its core chemical engineering curriculum in 2005 to include a new introductory course in bioengineering and biotechnology for sophomores. The unique features of this course are the extent to which it integrates bioengineering and biotechnology topics, and emphasizes the development of problem-solving and computational skills at the sophomore level. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
