The biological engineering program prepares students to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the design, development and operational evaluation of biological and biomedical systems, instrumentation, medical devices, artificial organs and prostheses, and bioinformatics.
The multidisciplinary nature of the program provides students with fundamental knowledge in math, physics, chemistry, biology and engineering during the first two years. In the upper-level courses, students integrate their knowledge of the life sciences with the principles of engineering to understand how biological systems work so they can design and develop technologies, materials and devices that will have a positive impact on human health and well-being. The program culminates in a two-semester capstone design project.
Details about the specific degree and college requirements for the BS – Biochemical Engineering degree are found in the UGA Bulletin.
