BEE 2600 - Principles of Biological Engineering

(crosslisted) ENGRD 2600 
Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite or corequisite: MATH 2930 , two semesters of core biology major classes and the investigative lab or BIOG 1445 .

M. Wu.

Focuses on the integration of biological principles with engineering, math, and physical principles. Students learn how to formulate equations for biological systems in class and practice in homework sets. Topics range from molecular principles of reaction kinetics and molecular binding events to macroscopic applications such as energy and mass balances of bioprocessing and engineering design of implantable sensors. Students will also experience scientific literature searches as related to the biological engineering topics, and critical analysis and evaluation of relevant information sources. BEE students must complete either BEE 2510  or BEE 2600 according to their academic plan. BEE students who complete both BEE 2510  and BEE 2600 receive engineering credit for only one of these courses.

Outcome 1: An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.

Outcome 2: An ability to communicate effectively.

Outcome 3: An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice for engineering practice.
