Bioengineering is a wide ranging field, alternatively referred to as biomedical engineering, which was created some 30 years ago by the merging interests of engineering and the biological/medical sciences. Bioengineers work closely with health professionals in the design of diagnostic and therapeutic devices for clinical use, the design of prosthetic devices, and the development of biologically compatible materials. Pacemakers, blood analyzers, cochlear implants, medical imaging, laser surgery, prosthetic implants, and life support systems are just a few of the many products and processes that have resulted from the team efforts of bioengineers and health professionals.

To pursue Biological Engineering you should work with an  Engineering Faculty Advisor (see below) as soon as possible to develop a plan of study leading to the Associate of Science Degree. 
It is especially critical to meet with a faculty advisor if you tested into a math class lower than MATH& 151 or an English class lower than ENGL& 101, or if you haven't had high school chemistry or physics.

If you haven't yet taken the Accuplacer test for placement contact the Assessment and Testing Center as soon as possible, but BEFORE contacting the faculty advisor.
