Leading the way in engineering in medicine.
To be a Bioengineer is to tackle some of the most complex problems in biology and medicine. Whether it’s engineering bacteria to produce novel chemicals, developing tissue-engineered organs, or inventing new medical devices, bioengineers employ the fundamentals of biology, chemistry, physics and engineering to solve real-world problems that can help millions.
