Bioengineering, also known as genetic engineering, is the execution of biological principles and engineering technology in the research and production of usable and life-sustaining products such as heart pacemakers and prosthetic implants. This discipline is highly interdisciplinary since it fuses concepts from various sciences such as chemistry, computer science, mechanical engineering, and biology. Also, bioengineers apply their knowledge in genetic modification, predicting chemical processes, controlling biological systems, and other techniques which address medical concerns.
