About the Department of Bioengineering

About the Department of Bioengineering

Bioengineering is a broad, emerging, and dynamic engineering discipline. At the application end, bioengineering involves the implementation of knowledge from various engineering disciplines in life sciences and medicine, such as: biomaterials and prostheses; tissue engineering and regenerative medicine; drug delivery systems and high throughput screening devices for drug discovery; imaging, monitoring and diagnostic devices, and biomedical micro devices and biosensors. At the conceptual end, bioengineering learns various lessons from nature and attempts to reverse-engineer naturally occurring biological solutions, devices and procedures, such as complexity in environmental systems; biomimetic materials and structures; energy efficient biomimetic propulsion systems; neuro morphic intelligent machines; molecular motors; biological communication and computation; and biologically-inspired robots.

The Department of Bioengineering in McGill's Faculty of Engineering was created in 2012 and is currently developing its undergraduate program. Please see our website for updates and contact information: www.mcgill.ca/bioengineering.
