Biological engineering (also biosystems engineering and bioengineering) deals with engineering biological processes in general. It is a broad-based engineering discipline that also may involve product design, sustainability and analysis of biological systems. In other words, Bioengineering is a discipline that applies engineering principles to biological systems for the purpose of developing new technologies of services to improve the living standards of societies. It exploits the new developments in molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology, cell metabolism and engineering principles and applies them in order to understand living systems and to bring solutions to various problems associated with these systems. Engineering is the discipline of acquiring and applying knowledge of design, analysis, and/or construction of works for practical purposes. ...


Bioengineering employs the knowledge and expertise in a number of pure and applied sciences such as; mass and heat transfer, kinetics, biocatalysis, biomechanics, bioinformatics, separation, and purification processes, bioreactor design, surface science, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and polymer science constitute the fundamentals of engineering and couples it with knowledge in biological sciences such as genetics, molecular biology, protein chemistry, cytology, neurobiology, immunology and pharmacology, aiming to solve the different problems of the various sectors of the modern societies.


Because other engineering disciplines overlap bioengineering living organisms (e.g., prosthetics in mechanical engineering), the term can be applied more broadly to include food engineering and biotechnology. Biological engineering is called Bioengineering by some colleges and Biomedical engineering is called Bioengineering by others, and is a rapidly developing field with fluid categorization.

Biological engineers are similar to biologists in that they study living organisms. They are engineers because they have a practical design aim in mind - they use research to create usable tangible products. In general, biological engineers attempt to 1) mimic biological systems in order to create products or 2) modify and control biological systems so that they can replace, augment, or sustain chemical and mechanical processes.

Bioengineering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (109 words)
Biological engineering (also biosystems engineering and bioengineering) is a broad-based engineering discipline that deals with bio-molecular and molecular processes, product design, sustainability and analysis of biological systems.
Generally, bioengineering encompasses other engineering disciplines when they are applied to living organisms (e.g., prosthetics in mechanical engineering).
Bioengineering is often synonymous with biomedical engineering, though in the strict sense the term can be applied more broadly to include food engineering and agricultural engineering.
Penn Engineering / Department of Bioengineering (228 words)
Bioengineering is the use of engineering principles of analysis and design to solve problems in medicine and biology.
The Department of Bioengineering at Penn was formally approved by the University in 1973, although academic and research programs in bioengineering date back to the 1920's.
In 1996 the Institute for Medicine and Engineering was created which substantially enhanced the bioengineering activities across the Penn campus.
