The scope of biosciences reaches across many different scales of size and of time, from the microscopic and submicroscopic levels of cells and molecules to the global scales of biological communities and ecosystems.
Bioengineering is a discipline that applies engineering principles to biological systems for the purpose of developing new technologies of services to improve the living standards of societies. Bioengineering employs the knowledge and expertise in a number of pure and applied sciences such as; mass and heat transfer, kinetics, biocatalysis, biomechanics, bioinformatics, separation and purification processes, bioreactor design, surface science, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and polymer science.
