What is Biological Engineering?
The intricate systems of life are all around us. Plants transform sunlight into energy and food. Water flows through streams and rivers, forming the earth’s circulatory system as it supports life and carries away waste for renewal. New forms of energy are being created from biodegradable products. As a biological engineer, you can learn how to control these systems to improve our health and that of our planet. Biological engineering graduates use knowledge of the natural world combined with engineering in greentech companies, environmental and ecological consulting companies and government agencies to design products and systems that protect the planet and enhance human life.
The primary role of the Academic Scholarship Office is to administer university-wide merit-based scholarships and serve as a central resource for prospective and current undergraduate students seeking scholarship funding. The office also serves as a clearinghouse for scholarships awarded by academic departments and outside agencies. The goal is to support the university's mission of recruiting and retaining high-achieving students who enrich and diversify the academic environment of the University of Arkansas.
Financial aid is always an option for incoming and current students.
