Courses

Chemical principles and key concepts for bioengineers including chemical nomenclature, chemical syntheses, nucleic acid and protein chemistry, enzymology, metabolism, and others. Students will utilize the methods and concepts taught in this course for problem solving in biotechnology, biomanufacturing and the biopharmaceutical fields. This course also discusses manufacturing, validating, and using drugs, plastics, gels, polymers and fuels for biotechnology industry.

Study under the supervision of a faculty member in an area covered in a regular course not currently being offered. Conditions and hours to be arranged.

A discussion on the surface interactions between different biological tissues and biomaterials. Protein adsorption to biomaterials, selective protein surface binding, biomolecule-nanomaterial interactions, ligand-functionalized biomaterial surfaces, growth factors on biomaterial scaffolds, cell and tissue interactions with biomaterials, functionalization of materials to promote protein and cell interactions, hydrogel nanocomposites in biology and medicine, inflammatory response to implanted nanostructured materials, collagen-coated titanium surfaces, and prevention of postsurgical adhesions are the topics to be covered. This course will also focus on the principles of the surface interaction of implants in host environment.

Professional and management activities of project engineering as a two course sequence. Students working in teams will integrate their learning by selecting a senior Bioengineering design project, leading to a written and oral presentation of a project proposal. Intellectual property rights, ethics and economic issues, as well as applicable regulations will be considered.
