A culminating experience in which the student synthesizes his/her course knowledge and experimental skills into a brief but detailed experimental study, which also involves cross-field interdisciplinary cooperation. Although in some cases this project may be done individually under the supervision of one faculty member, it is expected that students will join in a team-based, collaborative effort involving students from a number of different disciplines, post-doctoral fellows and industry representatives and with intercampus participation.

An introduction to laboratory methods in biotechnology and to the biotechnology industry. The course includes genetic engineering, protein manufacture, purification and analysis. The laboratory component includes bioengineering techniques, biosafety, data acquisition and analysis. There is also an introduction to software for engineering analysis and modeling.

An engineering approach to microbiology and bio-based products. This course discusses cellular and organismal metabolic networks and the mathematical and experimental manipulation of those networks. The techniques of synthetic biology and metabolic flux analysis, core concepts in metabolic engineering, are focused on here.

Independent research in the broadly defined field of Bioengineering. The focus may be more on the underlying science that students typically experience in a BNG course. The research will be conducted as projects that are the exercise for students to be acquainted with the research tools and instruments used in bioengineering. Students will define a problem or explore an unfamiliar phenomenon, design the experiment, collect and analyze data, and use the results to solve the problem or explain the phenomenon under the guidance of faculty advisors.

Introduction to engineering and computing with emphasis on development of problem solving skills through projects. The course is designed to increase the success of first year students. It includes an overview of majors in the college, and the importance of engaged learning. Team work, written and oral communication skills are covered. Ethical issues in engineering and computing are discussed.
