At the interface of engineering and medicine, bioengineering is an inherently interdisciplinary field with societal impact. The Bioengineering is engineering in a biological context such as the human body, an ecosystem, or a bioreactor. The interface of engineering and medicine as embodied in bioengineering will be one of the most exciting endeavors and greatest adventures of the 21st century. Job opportunities are expected to expand dramatically with a focus on development of entirely new classes of products, instrumentation, and implants. impact to human health will be extraordinary.
