Because other engineering disciplines also address living organisms, the term biological engineering can be applied more broadly to include agricultural engineering.
programs, makes a distinction between biomedical engineering and biological engineering, though there is much overlap (see above).
 History Biological engineering is a science-based discipline founded upon the biological sciences in the same way that chemical engineering, electrical engineering,
and mechanical engineering can be based upon chemistry, electricity and magnetism, and classical mechanics, respectively.
 • Bioprocess engineering: develops technology to monitor the conditions of where a particular process takes place, (Ex: bioprocess design, biocatalysis, bioseparation,
bioinformatics, bioenergy) • Environmental health engineering: application of engineering principles to the control of the environment for the health, comfort, and safety of human beings.
To resolve this problem, engineers who wanted to get into biological engineering devoted more time to studying the processes of biology, psychology, and medicine.
It is used in the design of medical devices, diagnostic equipment, biocompatible materials, renewable energy, ecological engineering, agricultural engineering, process engineering
and catalysis, and other areas that improve the living standards of societies.
 Before WWII, biological engineering had begun being recognized as a branch of engineering and was a new concept to people.
 Sub-disciplines Depending on the institution and particular definitional boundaries employed, some major branches of bioengineering may be categorized as (note these
may overlap): • Biomedical engineering: application of engineering principles and design concepts to medicine and biology for healthcare purposes.
• American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) is made up of 1,500 members.
 • Biological systems engineering: application of engineering principles and design concepts to agriculture, food sciences, and ecosystems.
Electrical engineering was the early focus of this discipline, due to work with medical devices and machinery during this time.
Their main goal is to educate the public about the value biological engineering has in our world, as well as invest in research and other programs to advance the field.
 o Tissue engineering o Genetic engineering o Neural engineering o Pharmaceutical engineering o Clinical engineering o Bioinformatics o Biomechanics • Biochemical engineering:
fermentation engineering, application of engineering principles to microscopic biological systems that are used to create new products by synthesis, including the production of protein from suitable raw materials.
 Bioengineering overlaps substantially with biotechnology and the biomedical sciences in a way analogous to how various other forms of engineering and technology relate
to various other sciences (such as aerospace engineering and other space technology to kinetics and astrophysics).
