Courses

Team-taught introductory course that emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach to current topics in the range of academic disciplines and gives students their first exposure to faculty research areas. The course, as much as possible, will involve faculty from all participating campuses, will involve outside industry speakers to present topics of contemporary importance, and will offer joint lectures from guest speakers. This course should be taken in a student's first semester in the program if possible.

Topics of timely interest in Bioengineering, Biotechnology and Biomedical Engineering. Course content may change from year to year according to instructor's preferences
