OCCED7300 Final Paper

Well another successful end to a course, after much request I am posting my final paper. Just to give an idea what to expect in write a college level paper. This is probably no my best writing (I think my worst paper ever) but it will give some ideas.

This paper is totally theoretical, opinionated and not finished. I was limited to ten pages but with all the steps and info involved I probably could of wrote a book on how to expand a new shop.  

Background: In this research paper we will take a look and see if our school needs to expand our current engineering elective to a new full-time Biotechnology program. We will also look into current steps being taken to carry out this additional curriculum to the Engineering Programs at our school.
