Courses

A culminating experience in which the student synthesizes his/her course knowledge and experimental skills into a brief but detailed experimental study, which also involves cross-field interdisciplinary cooperation. Although in some cases this project may be done individually under the supervision of one faculty member, it is expected that students will join in a team-based, collaborative effort involving students from a number of different disciplines, post-doctoral fellows and industry representatives and with intercampus participation.

Overview of important areas of bioengineering with a particular focus on biomedical engineering. Orthopedic and soft tissue implants will be discussed with related areas of biomechanics. Function and repair of eyes, kidneys, hearts, and other organs will be covered. The course will also cover FDA regulation, ethics and the biomedical business.

A technical understanding of medical instrumentation together with measurements in the growing fields of medical devices, cellular biology, and tissue engineering. This course introduces students to measurements, covers the necessary electronics, and then clinical chemistry measurements, cell counting and characterization, measurements on the nervous system, heart and circulation, lung function, kidney function and medical imaging.

A technical understanding of physiological measurements as they relate to the human body. This course introduces students to measurements, covers the necessary electronics, and the computer software interface used for analysis of normal and abnormal function of muscles, the nervous system, heart and circulation, and lung function.
