Bioprocess engineering is known by many names: biochemical engineering, biotechnology engineering and even biotechnical engineering.
Whatever the name, it's referring to the process of using biologic materials to develop new process, products and by-products.
Ironically, with all of the cutting edge technology deployed in the field today, bioprocess engineering has been around for thousands of years.
Sound is something you might not think about when it comes to the ocean. But sound plays a key role in understanding the ocean, and the diverse life that call it home. Marine animals use sound to navigate, communicate, find food, find mates and even avoid predators.

The Outer Banks are so ingrained into our collective national consciousness that people can visualize the coastal region without ever visiting it. The irony is that while images of the Outer Banks remain the same, the islands are constantly changing. They are supposed to.
