Overview

The BioMolecular Engineering program at Milwaukee School of Engineering is different from pure chemical engineering in the sense that it utilizes life sciences through the exploration of hybrid biological fields which leads to the design of new products or processes. Since the BioE program curriculum applies basic core chemical engineering principles, concepts and skills the chemical processes that convert raw materials or chemicals into more useful or valuable forms can be practiced by the program graduates.

Learning outcomes

The program is distinct from biomedical engineering due to the scale at which the design is practiced and the applications associated with it. While the biomedical field heavily impacts the field of medicine, the biomolecular engineering program at MSOE is tailored such that applications can be stretched over various industrial and academic fields, including biopharmaceuticals, biomaterials, cell culture, bioprocesses, biotechnology, food technology and other related fields.

Students in the biomolecular engineering (BioE) program work at the molecular level with simple and complex molecules. They take courses that cover concepts of thermodynamics, transport phenomena, cell engineering, biophysics, bioinformatics, nanotechnology and genomics. MSOE is the only university in the state to offer a bachelor’s degree in BioE.

You’ll sharpen your skills in a suite of cutting-edge laboratories that rival those found in the professional sector, using high-tech instruments like temperature-controlled incubators, atomic force microscopes, macro and micro centrifuges and more.
