Career as a Biological Engineer
Bioengineers use insights of Biology, Engineering, Computational Science, and other fields of Science to ‘engineer’ or design, build, test, and install various products, machines, systems, and applications. Bioengineers may produce an artificial neural network (a network of neurons as in the nervous systems of animals) which mimics an animal’s brain. Bioengineers may produce bacteria with a specific gene (by altering the natural genetic code of the bacteria) that can be used to mass produce biofuels. Bioengineers may develop artificial animal tissues and ‘bio-print’ the tissues to build an artificial limb or an organ. Bioengineering may develop nanorobots.
