Degrees in Biological Engineering

Our department offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in biological engineering.

Study biological systems and integrate them with fundamental principles of engineering for the purpose of designing processes and systems that influence, control or utilize biological materials and organisms to benefit humanity.

Blending the study of engineering with biology, chemistry, math, and physics, the Biological Engineering program prepares you to solve engineering problems in biotechnology, agriculture, environment, natural resources, medicine and pharmaceutics.

Design components, systems and processes for areas like healthcare technology, precision agriculture, sustainable bioenergy and environmental remediation. Much of your education takes place in the laboratory.
