What is bioengineering?
Intersection of engineering, medicine and the physical and natural sciences,
Bioengineering exploits new developments in molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology, and neurosciences as well as sensing, electronics, and imaging, to encompass any situation where technology must interface with a living system.
Bioengineers are mostly focused on help people lead longer, healthier, and more productive lives, and promoting environmental sustainability. Are currently there greater challenges for our world?
Bioengineering integrates physical, chemical, or mathematical sciences and engineering principles for the study of biology, medicine, behaviour, or health. It advances fundamental concepts, creates knowledge for the molecular to the organ systems levels, and develops innovative biologics, materials, processes, implants, devices, and informatics approaches for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, for patient rehabilitation, and for improving health.

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.
