The biochemical engineering program prepares students to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the study of biochemical processes in living organisms, properties of biological materials, and processes using biochemical agents such as cells, enzymes, and antibodies.
During the first two years, students attain foundational knowledge in math (up to and including differential equations), chemistry, physics and biology, while developing fundamental engineering skills in areas such as thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and mass transport. In the upper-level courses, students apply their knowledge and skills to solving complex engineering problems associated with bioprocesses. The program culminates in a two-semester capstone design project.
Details about the specific degree and college requirements for the BS – Biochemical Engineering degree are found in the UGA Bulletin.
