Bio Engineering


What Is Bio Engineering?

Bio engineering is the use of artificial tissues, organs, or organ components to replace damaged or absent parts of the body, such as artificial limbs and heart pacemakers.

Bio Engineers use applied sciences such as:

  • mass and heat transfer
  • kinetics
  • biocatalysts
  • biomechanics
  • bioinformatics
  • separation and purification processes
  • bioreactor design
  • surface science
  • fluid mechanics
  • thermodynamics
  • polymer science
  • How can you become a Bio Engineer?

    To become a Bio Engineer like all studies it starts in high school.It is recommended that while in high school students take advance placement courses such as calculus, life science, and chemistry.The next step would be to complete a Bachelor's degree program. A Bachelor of science in biomedical engineering from an accredited school is usually a requirement for a a career as a biomedical engineer. The next step would be to take part in some voluneer work. Volunteering will help you gain more expereince and it will increase you network, and help you make connections.The final step would be to obtain an Engineering license, this alows you to practice in the field you have been studing in.
