EB 1000 - Intro to BioMolecular Engineering

1 lecture hours 0 lab hours 1 credits
Course Description
The course introduces students to biomolecular engineering and its role as a profession in addressing contemporary technological, social, ethical, and economic issues in today’s world. The course highlights the integration of molecular biology into the engineering fields; the fusion of biology-based disciplines into chemical engineering; and new areas of biomolecular engineering such as cell and protein engineering, bioprinting and dicrete nanotransport. Lecture topics include examples of how biomolecular engineers can incorporate a wide range of biosciences with physics and chemistry to develop new products, and improve process efficiencies. Biomolecular modeling and basic concepts of design is introduced. (prereq: none) 
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
  • Gain an understanding of both the engineering profession and what biomolecular engineers do
  • Distinguish macro scales from micro scales. Should be able to perform unit and scale conversions
  • Gain an understanding of the importance of project participation. Ethics and rules of teamwork in a working environment for a lifelong learning approach
