Dept. of Bioengineering
The Dept. of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign enrolled its first students in Fall 2004. 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.
