Liang, Jia-chi; Kung, Shieh-shiuh; Sun, Yi-ming
Chemical Engineering Education, v43 n4 p296-301 Fall 2009
Yuan Ze University targeted Biomaterials Science and developed a curriculum related to Biotechnology, Biochemical Engineering, and Biomaterials for engineering students to cultivate talents for both engineering and biotechnology. After several years of operation, recruiting students has succeeded, and students are satisfied with the course design of the curriculum. The majority of professors advising students' special topic studies have evaluated student performance commendably, and most of the first-year graduates have chosen to pursue a higher degree or work in relevant field. Thus the interdisciplinary program shows the potential to foster and extend engineering students' vision while enabling them to consider different options for post-graduate study or work.
