Bioengineering - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (241 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.
Biological Engineering is the same thing as Agricultural Engineering, whereas Biomedical engineering (also known as bioengineering) is related with the medical field.
Biological engineering is called Bioengineering by some colleges and Biomedical engineering is called Bioengineering by others.
IBE - Institute of Biological Engineering (622 words)
IBE espouses the view that biological engineers should possess the scientific knowledge of biology, including its philosophical views, be proficient in the principles and practices of engineering, and be capable of integrating discoveries from multiple disciplines to design solutions for problems.
Biological engineering is different from an application-focused engineering area like bio-medical engineering which utilizes knowledge, techniques and perspectives of electrical, mechanical, or chemical engineering and applies them to the field of medicine.
Major ingredients of the science-based, application-independent biological engineering discipline are core concepts based on first principles; perspectives based on living systems and uncertainty; and applications of principles of similitude in biological engineering that enables selection of appropriate object-level-based engineering approaches to problems for designing solutions.
