ABET Program Outcomes Associated with this Course
Program Specific Student Outcomes
(1) Understanding of biology and physiology as related to biomedical engineering needs.
(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
Students work in teams on a client-based design problem. Each design team typically consists of four students--half sophomores and half juniors. These juniors serve as peer mentors in the design process, and also as a peer advisors on issues such as course and area choices that go beyond the immediate goals of the course. In this approach, the juniors gain leadership and mentorship experience. In the first third of the semester the team develops a conceptual design. For the final two-thirds of the semester the team completes the final design and prototype implementation.
