Therapeutics Engineering Track

Total Track Hours must equal 15 hours from the College of Engineering

Therapeutics Engineering builds understanding of bodily responses to implantable materials and drug delivery devices. The focus is on biomaterial selection and synthesis as well as an in depth study of drug design, manufacturing, and delivery. You will be trained in nano-materials, material properties, transport phenomena, biochemical engineering, and metabolic engineering. Application areas include individualized therapeutics, biomimetics, and drug delivery systems.
