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.

An introduction to biological and biomedical materials. The course examines the structure and properties of metallic, ceramic, polymeric, and biological materials and their interaction with biological systems. Consideration is given to biocompatibility and biodegradation of natural and synthetic biomedical materials and their use for hard and soft tissue replacement, organ replacement, coating and adhesives, dental implants, and drug delivery systems. Recent trends in biomaterials design, synthesis, commercialization and performance are also discussed.

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.

Application of knowledge gained in various courses to the synthesis, analysis, and design of a system in a particular bioengineering field of interest selected by the student's team. The product proposed in EGR 497 will be built in EGR 498.
