Biological engineering is the application of engineering to living systems. Examples of engineering efforts in this major include the development of new biosensor technologies, study and control of biologically based matter transformation systems, and development of engineered devices to study and regulate fundamental biological processes. Offered by the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering, the Biological Engineering minor is an opportunity for students to further their understanding of living systems and to increase their knowledge of the basic transport processes that occur within these systems. Courses in the minor provide opportunities to analyze, design, and manipulate living systems at the molecular, cellular, and system levels
Students in all Majors except Biological Engineering may participate in this minor.
