Program Overview

Biological Engineering applies natural science and engineering principles to the biological world. As such, Biological Engineering addresses a wide range of problems relating to the production and processing of environmental, food and other biomaterials, renewable energy and reusable resources. Emphasis is placed on optimizing design performance in dealing with biological materials and systems while preserving sustainability and protection of the environment. The Biological Engineering program has focused research in environmental engineering and biosystems engineering. Research projects therefore encompass both specific environmental concerns and the sustainable utilization of natural resources. The program has co-operative projects with faculty members in other universities both locally and internationally. Opportunities exist to participate in these research projects, providing wider experience and in which a specific component leads to a Master's degree.
