Bioengineering an interdisciplinary field, grounded on the interaction between biological sciences (as well as other life sciences) and engineering disciplines. The field of bioengineering is capable of realizing many diverse applications to improve human health and develop new technologies aimed at understanding biological phenomenon. Students will learn how to achieve these goals by applying engineering principles to a detailed understanding of biological processes. The major in Bioengineering, offered jointly by the School of Engineering and Computer Science and the College of Arts and Sciences, leads to the Bachelor of Science degree. Students should consult with advisers for the majors to be certain they are on track for all requirements.
