BEE 4530 - Computer-Aided Engineering: Applications to Biological Processes

(crosslisted) MAE 4530  
     
Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: BEE 3500  or equivalent. Corequisite: ENGRC 4530 . Satisfies BE capstone design requirement. Satisfies College of Engineering technical communications requirement.

A. Datta, R. Evans, T. Nathans-Kelly.

Introduction to simulation-based design as an alternative to prototype-based design; modeling and optimization of complex real-life processes for design and research, using industry-standard physics-based computational software. Emphasis is on problem formulation, starting from a real process and developing its computer model. Covers biomedical processes in thermal therapy and drug delivery that involve heat transfer, mass transfer, and fluid flow. Computational topics introduce the finite-element method, pre- and post-processing, and pitfalls of using computational software. Students choose their own semester-long biomedical project, which is the major part of the course (no final exam).

Outcome 1: Students will demonstrate improved ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety and welfare, as well as relevant global, cultural, social, environmental and economic factors (ABET 2).

Outcome 2: Students will display an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences (ABET 3).

Outcome 3: Students will demonstrate an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgements which consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts (ABET 4).

Outcome 4: Students will demonstrate an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks and meet objectives (ABET 5).

Outcome 5: Students will demonstrate the ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies (ABET 7).
