Courses

Join our student courses as industry partners through guest lectures and in-class projects. We are working with instructors and added more courses to our list of industry partner opportunities. See our current partnership opportunities below:

  • Class Projects

    We are seeking industry partners to work with our instructors to develop in-class projects. These projects can range from two-week to semester-long activities that allows students to gain a greater understanding of the post-graduate workplace and connections with potential employers while offering industry partners exposure to potential interns and soon-to-be graduates entering the workforce, solutions from innovative minds/digital natives working towards an industry challenges, and engagement with academics and influence on the future of the discipline.

    Applications in Biological Engineering (ABE 3000C)

    • Applications in Biological Engineering (ABE3000C) is a junior-level course that is taken by Biological Engineering students in ABE. This course provides an overview of the research and applications of biological engineering, such as bioprocessing, biotechnology, transport processes, biosensors, bioremediation, biological materials, and biomedicine.
    • This course is seeking industry partners for in-class projects to be conducted by students. These projects would last two to three weeks and can be customized by the partner and instructor. For more information, download the PDF for Applications in Biological Engineering (ABE 3000C).

    Principles of Packaging (PKG 3001)

    • Principles of Packaging (PKG3001) is taken by Biological Engineering students in addition to students from many departments, including food science, mechanical, chemical and industrial engineering. This course focuses on the materials uses, functions, and production processes of packaging.
    • This course would like to develop a long-term team project with an industry partner that focuses on specific types of packaging system or another subject of interest for the world of packaging. For more information, download the PDF for Principles of Packaging (PKG 3001).
  • Guest Lectures

    Industry professionals provide great insight to our students on what to expect as they continue their program studies and enter the workforce. We invite you to be a guest lecturer to showcase your area of the agricultural and biological engineering industry and provide valuable insight to the next generation. These guest lectures give students an appreciation for how coursework concepts are used in the profession and a greater understanding of the post-graduate workplace while offering industry partners exposure to potential interns and soon-to-be graduates entering the workforce and engagement with academics and influence on the future of the discipline.

    Principles of Packaging (PKG 3001)

    • Principles of Packaging (PKG3001) is taken by Biological Engineering students in addition to students from many departments, including food science, mechanical, chemical and industrial engineering. This course focuses on the materials uses, functions, and production processes of packaging.
    • This course is seeking industry partners to for guest lectures who will share information about sectors of the packaging industry (corrugated, glass, digital printing, labels, medical devices packaging, etc.). For more information, download the PDF for Principles of Packaging (PKG 3001).
