Biotechnical Engineering (Accelerated)

Credits: 1

The major focus of the Biotechnical Engineering course is to expose students to the diverse fields of biotechnology including biomedical engineering, biomolecular genetics, bioprocess engineering, and agricultural and environmental engineering. Lessons engage students in engineering- design problems that can be accomplished in a high-school setting related to biomechanics, cardiovascular engineering, genetic engineering, agricultural biotechnology, tissue engineering, biomedical devices, human interface, bioprocesses, forensics, and bioethics.
