Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering "spans the fields of biology and engineering."

"[A]lso called bioengineering, or biotechnical engineering, integrates the study of living systems into engineering, opening opportunities ti adapt and even create living products."

"Biological engineering [advances] fundamental understanding of how biological systems operate and [develops] effective biology-based technologies for applications across a wide spectrum of societal needs including breakthroughs in diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, in design of novel materials, devices, and processes, and in enhancing environmental health."


Computer Science

Computer science is "involved with the design and development of software. The computer scientist focuses primarily on the software and its optimization."

Computer Science is "the scientific and mathmatical approach to computation and specifically to the design of computing machines and processes."
