Bioproducts are developed to be renewable and environmentally sustainable. The Bioproducts Marketing and Management major addresses society's changing demand for these resources.
In this interdisciplinary major, you'll study science, technology and business. Coursework focuses on the manufacturing and use of materials, products, and energy derived from renewable resources.
CFANS students choose from two options:
Bioproducts Marketing and Management: This specialization combines technical courses in CFANS with business management courses from the U of M's Carlson School of Management. You'll learn about bioproduct industries through the lens of science, communications, and business. Graduates are well-grounded in general business principals, and stand out because of their background in sustainability and technical product lines.
Residential Building Science and Technology: This specialization combines coursework in science, engineering, and technology. The program focuses on the design, construction and operation of highly-efficient, long-lasting and healthier homes, with an emphasis on sustainability, energy efficiency, and renewable materials. Coursework addresses housing policy and design, architecture, building materials, construction methods, building logistics, and more.
