Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering

Introduction to Polymer Science: A Bio-based Approach

This course introduces polymer chemistry through polymers found in nature. It is designed as a unique introduction to the subject, which connects natural and synthetic polymers by exploring the chemistry of natural polymers from plants, animals and humans and self-assembled macromolecular structures. Chapters cover the basic concepts of polymer chemistry. Prereq: Chem 2310.

Advanced Food Process Design

An integration of quantitative parameters describing changes in the quality attributes of foods with quantification of the physical changes occurring between the time of raw material harvest or assembly and the point of food consumption. Models to predict changes in quality attributes as a function of process parameters will be developed and demonstrated. Prereq: FdScTe 5400, 5536, 5600, or FABEng 3481 or 4410, or permission of instructor. Not open to students with credit for FdScTe 7430. Cross-listed in FdScTe.

Energy In Biological Systems

An introduction to energy flow and transformations within and for biological systems that include the human environment and the production and processing of plants, animals and micro-organisms the student will encounter in the food, agricultural and biological engineering program. Prereq: Soph standing in Engineering. Not open to students with credit for 325.

Individual Studies

Advanced individual study of topics not included in regular courses; practice in development, organization, solution, and reporting on problems of student's choosing with faculty supervision. Repeatable to a maximum of 10 cr hrs or 4 completions. This course is graded S/U.

Seminar

Lecture and discussion of current topics related to food, agricultural and biological engineering presented by faculty, staff, graduate students, and guest speakers. Prereq: Grad standing in Engineering. Repeatable to a maximum of 8 cr hrs or 8 completions. This course is graded S/U.

College Teaching in Engineering

Initial preparation for providing instruction in professional engineering programs at the college level including skills, strategies and issues common to university teaching in general and engineering instruction more specifically. Prereq: Not open to students with credit for 810. This course is graded S/U.
