The Department of Biosystems and Biomaterials Science & Engineering is an exciting field that fuses engineering, biology and biotechnology into two cutting edge programs: biosystem engineering and biomaterials engineering.
In the 21st century, bio-related technologies are predicted to lead science and technology research. Accordingly, qualified people equipped with knowledge in both engineering and biotechnology are in high demand. The Department of Biosystems and Biomaterials Science and Engineering applies electric and electronic engineering, nanotechnologies, materials engineering, mechanical engineering and bioinformatics technology to biological products and materials.
The biosystems engineering program has branches in biomechanics, bio-processing, bio-production engineering, bio-environmental engineering, biosensors, and bioinformatics. The program’s research and education goals emphasize the development and optimization of biosystems. The extensive interdisciplinary research and excellent education programs will give much-needed vision to future leaders in bio-related technology, as well as unlimited prospects for scientists and engineers in both education and industry.
The biomaterials engineering program, based on biotechnology and materials engineering, focuses its research and education on the development of environmentally friendly biodegradable materials and new biomaterials, including those used for artificial organs, biochips, and many other unique applications.
