CHEME 4810 - Biomedical Engineering

(also BME 4810 )
Fall. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: CHEME 3240  or equivalent or permission of instructor.

C. A. Alabi.

Special topics in biomedical engineering, including blood flow, design of artificial devices and artificial organs, biomaterials and biocompatibility, biological transport phenomena, pharmacokinetics and drug delivery strategies, tissue engineering, and analysis of physiological processes.

Outcome 1: Students will be able to apply chemical engineering principles to develop appropriate models of physiological systems. They will appreciate that different kinds of models are needed to describe physiological functions over a range of scales from subcellular to cellular to whole organ. Students will appreciate differences in biomaterials and how to choose biomaterials for different applications. (a, b, c, e, h, k)

Outcome 2: Students will appreciate design considerations in developing devices, therapies, and strategies to treat biomedical problems. They will gain an appreciation for the set of interdisciplinary skills required to solve biomedical problems. (a, c, d, e, h, i, j, k)

Outcome 3: Students will acquire knowledge that enables them to read, understand, and evaluate critically current research papers in the biomedical engineering topics covered in the course. (a, e, f, g, h, i, j, k)

Outcome 4: Students will use knowledge and skills gained in the class to identify a biomedical problem of significance, show how engineering principles can be applied to analyze the problem and design potential therapies, describe and evaluate current and proposed solutions of the problem, and communicate their findings to an engineering audience. (a, b, c, d, e, g, h, k)
