Biological engineering is a science-based engineering discipline that integrates engineering and biological sciences in one curriculum. The MU biological engineering program is a broadly-based curriculum that prepares students for careers in three areas:
- Biomedical Engineering (including pre-medicine)
- Bioprocess Engineering
- Bioenvironmental Engineering
Biological engineering graduates are hired by biotechnology, medical, pharmaceutical, food and agricultural companies, and by government agencies. Some attend graduate and medical schools. Graduates are well prepared to take the Fundamentals of Engineering exam during their senior year, which is the first step toward obtaining a Professional Engineer license.
