New Degree in Biological Engineering Set to Launch

Wentworth has announced a new degree: the Bachelor of Science in Biological Engineering (BBIO). The new major will accept students for the Fall 2017 semester.

Biological engineering is at the leading edge of emerging engineering disciplines, applying engineering principles to biology at the molecular and cellular level to create new products and processes. 

By understanding how biological systems and processes are structured—as well as their functions at the fundamental level—new technologies, materials, and systems can be created to improve quality of life through a broad array of sectors ranging from health care to the environment.

The Biological Engineering major is designed for students interested in going beyond straight life sciences to developing innovative solutions involving the application of engineering principles. The major can serve as a forerunner to pre-med or other graduate programs.
