ABET Program Outcomes Associated with this Course
Program Specific Student Outcomes
(2) Ability to apply knowledge of advanced mathematics (including differential equations and statistics), sciences, and engineering to solve problems at the interface of engineering and biology and to model biological systems
(3) Ability to design and conduct experiments, including making measurements and interpreting experimental data from living systems and addressing the problems associated with the interaction between living systems and non-living materials and systems
Brief List of Topics to be Covered

The only hardware required is a yellow pad and a pencil. The goal of the course is to make the student self-reliant in the mathematical representation and interpretation of physical phenomena.
