Master of Science in Biochemical Engineering

 

Serving primarily the pharmaceutical industry, biochemical engineering is a niche discipline within the biomedical engineering field, which is ranked first on CNN Money’s list of the “Best Jobs in America” (2012). With solid earnings potential, a 10-year job growth rate estimated at 62%, and Villanova University’s proximity to more than 1,200 pharmaceutical companies in the Philadelphia region, there’s never been a better time to earn your graduate degree in this rapidly evolving field.

Villanova’s Master of Science in Biochemical Engineering program focuses on the design and optimization of biopharmaceutical facilities, processes and products using state-of-the-art analysis and technology. Most courses are available through our E-Learning program, which offers much-needed convenience and flexibility, and students can earn their degree entirely online.
