Abstract

Bioengineering combines the analytical and experimental methods of the engineering profession with the biological and medical sciences to achieve a more detailed understanding of biological phenomena and to develop new techniques and devices. The engineer's quantitative and analytical approach; traditional competence in the processing and control of information, energy, and materials; and ability to design and analyze systems are powerful tools when applied to biology, medicine; and quantitative studies of relationships between biological systems and their environments.

The Illinois Board of Higher Education approved the formation of the Department of Bioengineering on December 9, 2003. Also approved at this time were the granting of Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Bioengineering.

The first class of 22 undergraduates and 3 graduate students entered in fall 2004.

Currently the Department is home to 10 full-time faculty, 45 graduate students, and over 170 undergraduates.
