BME 702: Organs on Chips
This course provides an overview of the concepts, techniques, and approaches for engineering micro-scale pieces of biomimetic, functional human tissues. These engineered cellular systems have applications in regenerative medicine and as new tools for screening drugs and studying human development and disease as “Organs on Chips”.
BME 302: Cellular Engineering
Cellular engineering addresses issues related to understanding and manipulating cell structure-function relationships. This course is intended to bridge between cell biologists and engineers, to understand quantitatively cell biological aspects. Central to biomaterial and tissue engineering is our use of cells and our understanding of their interactions with their environment. Students are provided with an introduction to engineering principles and modeling at the cellular level.
BME 112: Introduction to Engineering II
Introduction to biomedical engineering analysis, design, and manufacturing processes. Ethics, regulatory factors, and biomedical engineering design tools (mechanical, electrical and computer tools) are introduced. Hands on experience is provided through a project in which the students design, assemble, program, and test biomedical devices.
