Milwaukee School of EngineeringmsoeBIOMOLECULAR ENGINEERING PROGRAM More InfoBiomolecular engineering is a diverse, application-driven discipline in the areas of medical, agricultural, environmental, biotechnological and other life-sciences fields. Globally, chemical, biological and nano industries seek engineering graduates who are prepared to work with the life sciences at a molecular level. Biomolecular engineering (BioE), a four-year Bachelor of Science degree program at MSOE, meets this need. The curriculum of the BioE program is a balanced combination of application-driven engineering, science, computational and biotechnology courses. Along with laboratory and rigorous math and science training, these courses address the cross-disciplinary nature of biomolecular engineering.

Each year, two graduate and two undergraduate students will be supported in addition to an REU student and a high school teacher. Strong interaction with our Rapid Prototyping Center and the new NanoEngineering Laboratory are anticipated.

MSOE is one of seven universities nationwide that is part of this research center for fluid power. MSOE’s involvement in the center will amplify its already significant work in fluid power, applying new technologies to the field. The lead university is the University of Minnesota. MSOE was chosen to be a part of this center because of its 40-plus year history in fluid power education and research, through its Fluid Power Institute™.

Milwaukee School of EngineeringmsoeNANOENGINEERING LABORATORY More InfoResearch and education at the nano-scale is becoming more critical each year as research and development focuses on nano-scale phenomena, ultrafine structures and interfaces between matter. Atomic Force Microscopy (“AFM”) allows the force between a small tip and a chosen sample surface to be measured with atomic-scale resolution. Initially lateral forces between the tip and the sample can also be measured to better understand the origins of friction at the molecular scale.
