BEE 3500 - Heat and Mass Transfer in Biological Engineering

Fall, Summer. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite or corequisite: MATH 2930  and fluid mechanics course.

A. Datta.

Focuses on understanding the principles of heat and mass transfer in the context of biological (biomedical/bioprocessing/bioenvironmental) systems. Emphasizes physical understanding of transport processes with application examples from plant, animal and human biology, the bioenvironment (soil/water/air), and industrial processing of food and biomaterials.  Development of problem solving abilities is emphasized using active learning techniques.

Outcome 1: Students will apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to define and solve problems in heat and mass transfer in biological engineering.

Outcome 2: Students will improve their ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.

Outcome 3: Students will improve their capacity to integrate modern biology with engineering principles.
