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.

Introduction to Biomedical Engineering (Formerly 25.107)

Description

This course provides a hands-on introduction to mechanical engineering and the engineering design process. Through assignments and projects, students learn how to: identify a problem, develop alternative solutions, select the best alternative, make critical decisions, and work as a team.

Thermodynamics

Description

The laws of thermodynamics describe the relationship of heat and other forms of energy. In this course, the following concepts are introduced: the definition of systems; the first and second laws of thermodynamics; the properties of pure substances and mixture; and phase behaviors. This course emphasizes the application of thermodynamics to biological ad biomedical systems.

Biomedical Engineering I

Description

This course is the first of a two semester sequence that form a survey of different topic areas within biomedical engineering. The course will emphasize a multidisciplinary approach to current topics in the range of academic disciplines in biomedical engineering.

Biomedical Engineering Lab I

Description

This course will be a Laboratory section associated with BMEN.3010 Biomedical Engineering I.

Biomedical Engineering II

Description

This course is the second of a two semester sequence that form a survey of different topic areas within biomedical engineering. The course will emphasize a multidisciplinary approach to current topics in the range of academic disciplines in biomedical engineering.

Prerequisites

Level Junior Standing.

Biomedical Engineering Lab II

Description

This course will be a laboratory section associated with BMEN.3020 Biomedical Engineering II.

Prerequisites

Co-req: BMEN.3020 Biomedical Engineering II, and Junior Standing.

Transport Phenomena for Biomedical Engineering

Description

This course will provide an understanding and theories of transport in biological systems. It then builds on this knowledge base to show real world applications in the development and design of medical devices, artificial organs, drug delivery systems, and tissue engineering.

Biomaterials

Description

There is currently no description available for this course.

Medical Device Design I

Description

This course focuses on how to take a medical device invention forward from early concept to technology translation and implementation planning.

Tissue Engineering

Description

Tissue engineering utilizes engineering materials, cells, and other biochemical factors to develop and manipulate cells, tissues, or organs which can replace and/or support biological functions. In this course, we will explore the principles underlying tissue structure-function relationships; how to rationally alter, restore, or improve cellular environments; and clinical implementations.

Prerequisites

Level Junior Standing.

Drug Delivery

Description

This class describes the engineering of pharmaceutical delivery systems emphasizing design and application of materials and novel techniques to overcome challenges or barriers to effective drug delivery. Topics will include drug delivery fundamentals and transport mechanisms, drug formulation for delivery, and applications.

Prerequisites

Pre-req: BMEN.3010 Biomedical Engineering I, and BMEN.3100 Transport Phenomena.

Directed Study: BME

Description

This course provides Biomedical Engineering students with the opportunity to pursue the study of a technical topic or project, individually under the supervision of a faculty member and, if desired, a responsible project engineering from industry. The course is to result in a term paper or technical report.
