In Bioengineering, engineering and the life sciences work together to advance human well-being and solve problems of the biological world.
From the development of biofuels to the creation of biotechnology, bioengineering plays a role in many areas of contemporary engineering.
At the same time, the role of engineering in medicine continues to increase rapidly, as:
- sophisticated medical equipment enhances the skill of surgeons
- better diagnostics supplement the experience of health practitioners
- wearable technology helps to keep us in good health and free from disease
- BS in Bioengineering
- BS in Bioengineering - Biomedical Engineering Concentration
- BS/MS in Bioengineering - Accelerated Program
- MS, PhD in Biomedical Engineering & Biotechnology - Interdisciplinary Program
- Minor in Bioengineering
