Bioengineering Courses

There is a growing need for a more integrated approach to the understanding of biological systems, providing many opportunities for the application of engineering to clinical and life sciences. Bioengineering is a rapidly growing field encompassing the use of engineering tools to solve problems in medicine and biology as well as new quantitative approaches to biological systems based on engineering principles. These topics complement those from the core Engineering Area
