Environmental Biotechnology

The Environmental Biotechnology track investigates the development, control, and characterization of biological processes for water and wastewater treatment and environmental restoration. Focus is on biological transformations in complex systems comprising microbial communities. Application and integration of current molecular tools for monitoring and assessing these systems is integrated within the framework of process design and implementation.

Track requirements

In addition to the four core credit requirements, students in this track must also take:

  • CEE-139 Bioremediation: Natural & Enhanced
  • CHBE-163 Recombinant DNA Techniques
  • 4 Elective Credits
