The MEng is an intensive two-year program housed within the Amgen Bioprocessing Center at KGI. The program is designed to train students to become bioprocess engineering professionals employed within the biopharmaceutical industry.
Core courses, workshops, and seminars include:
Foundational (pre-requisite) courses for students with first degrees in sciences include:
Foundational (pre-requisite) courses for students with first degrees in engineering include:
During the summer of the first year, students select to work on one of the following options:
Second year courses are designed to give students “real life” skills and training of working within the biopharmaceutical industries. Students take advanced technical, management, and professional skill development courses that are designed to help graduates succeed within a variety of careers in industry.
The second year concludes with the capstone Team Design Project. The equivalent of four normal courses, teams of students will work closely with an industry sponsor and a faculty advisor to create an innovative solution to a bioprocess engineering design challenge.
All students will be assigned two advisors to guide their academic and professional career development. The first is an academic advisor from the bioprocessing faculty, who will provide advice and guidance on each student’s academic progress. The second advisor is an industry mentor, typically a bioprocess engineering faculty with considerable industry experience or a professional affiliated with the Amgen Bioprocessing Center. The industry mentor will provide career advice and professional networking guidance.
All students will work with their advisors to create an individual development plan that will help guide students from matriculation at KGI through graduation.
