Recent developments in micro- and nano-technology have become the primary thrust of many new research opportunities in bioengineering to provide better imaging, diagnosis, therapeutic therapy, and monitoring progression of various diseases. Biology and Chemistry are becoming highly quantitative disciplines, dealing with deeply complex interacting factors. Engineered systems are increasingly integrating biological operability and capabilities into traditional methodology. Light matter interactions traditionally employed in Optical Physics has generated new fields in Biophysics and Bioengineering. These are unique challenges often requiring interdisciplinary collaborations among researchers with diversified expertise. Therefore, it is important to educate the next generation of undergraduate students to possess the technical knowledge within their core discipline, to cultivate opportunities for interdisciplinary problem solving and to prepare them for an industrial or graduate environment involving interdisciplinary research.
