Bioengineering

What is Bioengineering?

Bioengineering is the application of the life sciences, physical sciences, mathematics and engineering principles to define and solve problems in biology, medicine, health care and other fields.

Bioengineering is a relatively new discipline that combines many aspects of traditional engineering fields such as chemical, electrical and mechanical engineering. Examples of bioengineering include:

  • artificial hips, knees and other joints
  • ultrasound, MRI and other medical imaging techniques
  • using engineered organisms for chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing

Bioengineering graduates are employed by a variety of institutions, including medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, regulatory agencies and medical research institutions.

In addition, bioengineering graduates are prepared for continued study to pursue careers in medicine, law, business and other fields.
