What is Biochemical Engineering?
Biochemical Engineering is a profession like medicine. It enhances the quality of our lives by defining ways in which new biological discoveries can be sensitively translated into practical realities. The UCL Department of Biochemical Engineering is thus concerned professionally with ethical issues, costs to the recipient and the achievement of innovation. In the next decade and beyond, the contributions of biochemical engineers to the national and international community will be vital not only in the area of new medicines where we are pioneering new degrees but also for more nutritious foods, novel materials from renewable sources and improved approaches to reducing and dealing with environmental pollution.
For a non-specialist summary of the activities in which biochemical engineers are involved and the challenges they face, read The Excitement of Biochemical Engineering.
