Biomedical, Biological & Chemical Engineering
Where Sustainability Meets Innovation to Solve Challenges in Health, Energy and Natural Resources
Biomedical, Biological & Chemical Engineering brings students and researchers from a variety of backgrounds together to learn, discover and innovate in fields such as medicine, biotechnology and sustainable energy, food and water.
Students in this department have the unique opportunity to take courses typically with 35 students or less. And at Mizzou, engineering faculty and students have the opportunity to conduct interdisciplinary research across campus.
Choose from one of our three distinct undergraduate degrees or one of five graduate degrees and discover your passion. Our degrees will prepare you for the jobs not just of today, but of the future.
The departments of Bioengineering & Chemical Engineering joined together in 2018 to form the Biomedical, Biological & Chemical Engineering Department, allowing for greater benefits to Mizzou students and new avenues for collaboration on cutting-edge research at MU.
- B.S. in Biomedical Engineering

Pairing these disciplines breaks down the walls that inhibit collaboration, leading to potentially groundbreaking research results. In turn, these world-class projects benefit our students in terms of undergraduate and graduate research opportunities. This tremendously impacts two of the College’s four Pillars of Pursuit — Biomedical Innovations and Sustainability inFEWSed (Food, Energy, Water, Smart Cities).
The fields of energy, biofuels, biotechnology, biomaterials, pharmaceuticals, biomedical technology, plant science, veterinary medicine and countless others rely on engineers and scientists from a variety of backgrounds who possess a wide array of skillsets. The BBCE Department helps bring students and researchers from a variety of backgrounds together to train and discover on the cutting edge of all of these fields.
