Bioengineering

Main article:Biological engineering

A broad term encompassing all engineering applied to the life sciences. This field of study utilizes the principles of biology along with engineering principles to create marketable products. Some bioengineering applications include:

  • Biomimetics - The study and development of synthetic systems that mimic the form and function of natural biologically produced substances and processes.
  • Bioprocess engineering - The study and development of process equipment and optimization that aids in the production of many products such as food and pharmaceuticals.
  • Industrial microbiology - The implementation of microorganisms in the production of industrial products such as food and antibiotics. Another common application of industrial microbiology is the treatment of wastewater in chemical plants via utilization of certain microorganisms.
