This paper will discuss the history and development of bioengineering, the different disciplines involved in bioengineering, will compare to work of bioengineers with the other fields of engineering; the focus of bioengineers and how their work, research and inventions interface with medicine and therefore translating into the current advances that are now evident in surgery, eye care, drug delivery systems, stem cell research and gene therapy. The connections will be made between the content area of biology and models that are useful in physics. Some of the mathematical models that are employed in the field of bioengineering will be discussed. Of special interest will be the development of drug delivery systems.
