Penn: Biotechnology

Home Résumé Humor Say WHAT?!?! Guestbook Travels Penn


Penn's Master of Biotechnology program is a professional masters program jointly sponsored by the School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) and the College of Arts and Sciences (The College).  It combines aspects of chemical engineering, bioengineering, and molecular biology/genetics.

Here you can find all of the work that I have done for my courses relevant for the Engineering Track of the Master of Biotechnology program.  I have listed them according to the degree requirements as listed in the program's Web page.  These are collapsible lists, so click on the professor's name to see the rest of the information.  Much of it is in Adobe PDF format, so you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the material.  Other files are in .ZIP format, so you will need a program such as WinZip to extract them.

Note: Due to server space restrictions, I have removed many of the documents from this site.  I still have copies of them.  If you would like to see any of the work, please feel free to send me a request.
