(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
Fundamentals of biomedical engineering and principles of design are included in lecture. Hands-on laboratory sessions include basic laboratory and sterile techniques related to biomaterials and tissue engineering, machine shop certification – machining and fabrication, 3D modeling and Computer Aided Design using SolidWorks, advanced simulations in SolidWorks, an introduction to finite element modeling using ANSYS, basic circuits and electrical measurements, computer programming with LabVIEW and microcontroller programming. These sessions build the skills needed to solve a guided design project within the course.
