M.S. Biopharmaceutical Engineering

New Jersey is considered a “hot bed” for pharmaceutical, health care, and bioscience companies, and examples of large and small companies having major facilities in New Jersey abound. The use of microbial/biological systems and the manipulation of biological systems for the production of pharmaceutical products and therapeutic agents are becoming increasingly important for these companies and for the health care industry as a whole.

Summary

The primary objective of the program is to educate professionals by providing them with the skills required to work in the bioprocessing and biopharmaceutical field, with particular emphasis on the engineering aspects of industrial bioprocessing and biomanufacturing, biopharmaceutical production, and biological/biochemical development.

Biopharmaceutical Engineers have an affinity for chemistry and biochemistry. The focus of the MS Program in Biopharmaceutical Engineering is to provide individuals with the knowledge needed to understand and apply sound engineering principles to the industrial production of therapeutics by means of biological processes.
