Minor in Immune Engineering
About the Minor
The purpose of this undergraduate minor is to leverage Drexel’s unique strengths and leadership in this area to advance the education of the next generation of leaders in immune engineering.
Students who complete the minor in Immune Engineering will gain knowledge about the innate and adaptive immune systems, the importance of these systems for the success or failure of various treatments for diverse clinical applications, and how to manipulate these systems for therapeutic benefit. Given the increasing understanding of the importance of the immune system in biomaterial design, drug delivery, and cell and gene therapy, students earning a minor in Immune Engineering will be well positioned to work in the pharmaceutical, biomaterials, and cell and gene therapy sectors.
Students completing majors with backgrounds in biology or engineering are encouraged to consider this minor.
