All Biochemical & Biomedical Engineering

Biology and chemistry are immensely interesting to study in their own right, but sooner or later scientists are going to want to do something practically useful with these sciences. This is where biochemical and biomedical engineering comes in. ​These techniques allow us to use living organisms – often microorganisms – to produce pharmaceuticals, food, biofuels, and clean water. Even living tissue can be manipulated in this way to create organs ready for transplant.​The coursework required for a bachelor’s degree typically straddles biochemistry research and traditional engineering. Most students can follow a career in either specialization. In addition, most pre-med requirements are covered automatically, providing students with a further career option.​As a great deal of this work is done in the lab, manual dexterity and good powers of concentration are a definite plus in this profession. Students also need to be comfortable with mathematics and scientific concepts in order to keep up with this demanding course of study.
