- STEM designated program
This primary goal of the industry-sponsored program is to meet the career aspirations of qualified students and professionals who wish to develop their practical and foundational skills in the new and emerging areas of biopharmaceutical and biological engineering and bioprocessing. The Ph.D. program will produce well-trained and well-educated individuals who can meet the rising technical and regulatory demands for manufacturing of safe and efficacious medicine including legacy biologics such as vaccines, proteins and monoclonal antibodies, as well as advanced, next-generation biologics such as gene therapy, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
- Create independent research leading to new knowledge in a specialized area relevant to processing and commercialization of biologics.
- Support advanced skills through design of new equipment and technologies, setting up and conducting novel experiments, gathering and analysis of qualitative and quantitative data.
- Defend results and data through effective written and oral communication and presentation.
- Synthesize interactive, multidisciplinary, collaborative experiences through reflection on learning, work and instruction.
- Evaluate decisions based on ethical principles in research, development and professional activities.
Curriculum: 3 Years, 54 Credits
For students matriculating in the PhD in Biologics Process Engineering program with no graduate background in Bioprocessing, a group of foundation courses may be required. The foundation courses will be determined at the time of admission by the program director.
