Introduction to Biomedical Engineering (Formerly IB 400)

Description

Provides exposure to cutting-edge biomedical technologies in a number of different areas with a balance between biomedical engineering and biotechnology areas.

Prerequisites

Pre-req: HSCI 2510 Physiological Chemistry I, or CHEM 1210 Chemistry I, or CHEM 1110 General Chemistry I, and PHYS 1030 General Physics I, and PHYS 1030L General Physics Lab I, or PHYS 1410 Physics I, or PHYS 1410L Physics I Lab.

Biomedical Engineering Seminar

Description

This course provides undergraduate students in Biomedical Engineering the opportunity to expand their knowledge of Biomedical Engineering career opportunities and develop required skills. Content includes the development of professional skills (career opportunities, resume writing, etc) and an exploration of current research areas through presentations by faculty (and/or off-campus subject matter experts) and through literature review.

BME Application Programming

Description

Introduces programming logic for engineers. Covers fundamentals of procedural programming with applications in Biomedical Engineering and embedded systems. Topics include variables, expressions and statements, console input/output, modularization and functions, arrays, pointers and strings algorithms, structures, and file input/output. Introduces working with Matlab. Laboratories include designing and programming engineering applications.

Bioinstrumentation

Description

This course introduces fundamental of instrumentation for biological applications. In this course we will explore sources of signals, detection of these signals, signals to noise, and data processing. We will learn how to analyze circuits including energy storage elements, op-amps, and filters.

Prerequisites

Pre-req: MATH.1320 Calculus II, and PHYS.1440 Physics II, and Co-req: BMEN.2205L.

Bioinstrumentation Lab

Description

This course is the laboratory section associate with Bioinstrumentation (BMEN.2200). The lab will learn how to build basic circuits to collect physiologically-relevant data and analyze the data using concepts from signal processing.

Prerequisites

Co-req: BMEN.2200 Bioinstrumentation.

Quantitative Physiology

Description

This course provides an introduction to human physiology using a quantitative, systems oriented approach. Systems examined include: musculoskeletal: cardiovascular; respiratory; renal; gastrointestinal; and endocrine. Mathematical models, MATLAB simulation and engineering analyses are used to describe system performance where applicable.

Prerequisites

Pre-req: BMEN.2200 Bioinstrumentation, and Co-req: BMEN.3205L Quantitative Physiology Lab.

Quantitative Physiology Lab

Description

Experiments involving the modeling and measurement of human physiology systems. Use of computer simulations to provide mathematical descriptions of physiological behavior. Calibration and validation of models through hands-on experiments. Focus on quantitative measurement of neural, cardiovascular, respiratory, muscular, and endocrine system functions.

Prerequisites

Pre-req: BMEN.3200 Quantitative Physiology.

Biomechanics

Description

The course provides an overview of musculoskeletal anatomy, the mechanical properties and structural behavior of biological tissues, and biodynamics. Specific course topics will include structure and function relationships in tissues and organs; application of stress and strain analysis to biological tissues; analysis of forces in human function and movement; energy and power in human activity; introduction to modeling viscoelasticity of tissues.

Prerequisites

Pre-req: PHYS.1410 Physics I, and BMEN.1200 BME Applications Programming.
