Bioengineering, also referred to as biomedical engineering, is the application of engineering tools and approaches to solve problems in biology and medicine. It is a broad and growing field that draws upon rapid advances in technology and computation, as well as on unprecedented growth in basic biological understanding.
This program concentrates on making measurements and analyzing complex data. It is challenging since it will provide a solid foundation in engineering or computer science, and also give in-depth exposure to the life sciences. The impact of engineering and computer science on biomedicine is wide, ranging from improved medical diagnosis through advanced imaging technologies, to enhanced biological understanding gained by computational models of protein function. With the growing demand for better health care while also containing its costs, the need for bioengineers is expected to be high.
