What's bioengineering all about?
Recent advances in the fields of biology, mathematics and physics have resulted in the development of a new field of engineering, commonly referred to as bioengineering. It encompasses the areas of biological, physiological, medical and social systems, as well as other fields in which the design, development or modification of complex, knowledge-intensive systems is a requirement.
Bioengineering, like other fields of engineering, educates individuals in the art of product and process development for the improvement of human health and quality of life. It is a unique science-based engineering discipline that not only draws on the sciences but engineering sciences and the liberal arts as well, so as to educate a well-rounded student.
Our students delve into exciting topics — such as biodevices, biomechanics and bioinformatics — while developing vital analytical and creative thinking skills and a strong ethical foundation preparing them to tackle a variety of healthcare issues.
