What is BioEngineering?
Bio-engineering applies engineering principles of design and analysis to biological systems and biomedical technologies. Students in bio-engineering incorporate fundamentals of both biology and engineering, which may include elements of electrical and mechanical engineering, computer science, materials science, chemistry, and biology. Students explore areas of interest and collaborate widely with professionals or researchers. Examples of bio-engineering student research at Harrison include the development of a deployable ballistic-resistant shield for classrooms, the study of Streptomyces griseus in the degradation of polyethylene, 3D printed prosthetic devices to assist riders with hippo-therapy, development of alternative methods to create straws from corn husks and more.
