Biological Engineering is the combination of concepts of Biology with the principles of Engineering to create economically feasible products. It is used in the design of medical devices, biocompatible materials, diagnostic equipment, renewable bioenergy and other areas to make living standards better.
In general, Biological Engineers strive to either imitate the biological systems to create products or modify and control biological systems so that they can replace, enlarge, sustain, or anticipate chemical and mechanical processes.
The aim of subjects in Biological Engineering is to try to mimic biological systems to control and improve chemical and mechanical processes. Biocatalysis, bioprocess engineering, genetic modification of plants and animals are some of the other areas of application. Some Biological Engineering subjects include:
The requirements to study Biological Engineering for most universities in the US, Canada primarily includes the GRE. Few universities from Germany require GRE scores. However, GRE is not required for admission to Australian universities. IELTS or TOEFL is compulsory for acquiring a student visa and as a proof of English proficiency.
