Bioengineering is..

Before Module 3, I had never heard of being able of utilizing biomaterials to construct things such as solar cells. I always assumed that bioengineering was limited to combining engineering principles and life sciences to address challenges in fields of medicine and healthcare specifically. To be honest, before 20.109, I could not actually tell you what it meant to combine engineering with biology except that it sounded cool. Many times, I had worried that I picked the wrong major because I did not know what bioengineering could be applied to and what I was getting into. It is somewhat scary that it was not until 20.109 and 20.320, my junior year that I have really gained an understanding of what it means to be in bioengineering! The modules presented in 20.109 showed that you could use a biological system for different applications outside of it natural function, such as even making solar cells. Bioengineering is the manipulation of biological responses, which you can design and analyze, to solve many problems. All in all, I think I made a good choice J
