The integration of bio-focused engineering courses in the undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum is expected to provide an effective learning experience. Biology provide knowledge and skills dealing with biological concepts as the building blocks for engineering design and process. The engineering provide access to the existing technologies by featuring the design process. The collective approach to integrating biology and chemical engineering helps to prepare the students for careers in food, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries. The collective approach featured the vertical integration of bio-related course materials and laboratory experiments throughout core courses. Vertical integration enhances the educational quality by integrating concepts, skills, models, and data throughout al level of curriculum. Through eight hands-on modules, the students in the introductory course are introduced to a variety of multidisciplinary biomedical topics.
