Overview

Bioengineering at KAUST: King Abdullah University of Science and Technology The field focuses on the development and application of engineering concepts, principles, and methods to biological systems. We aim to model, monitor, and treat disorders and disabilities that affect living organisms, to develop algorithms which aid understanding biological systems and to engineer living systems in order to enhance their performance.

Key facts:

The technologies that are generated in this area might include synthetic tissues or organs, sensors that are wired to human body and prosthetics that mimic the natural function of a limb, smart algorithms and end-to-end data analytical engines, bioreactors that improve the quality of treated wastewater and bacteria engineered to produce resources. Bioengineering integrates elements of electrical and mechanical engineering, biochemistry, chemistry, computer science and materials science with biology. Thanks to this multidisciplinary nature, the field of bioengineering often creates out-of-the-box solutions addressing and solving challenges in effect augmenting the well-being of living systems.
