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 .

J. March.

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: Students will improve their ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science and mathematics (ABET 1).

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

Outcome 4: 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 5: 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 6: Students will improve their ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgement to draw conclusions (ABET 6).

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

Outcome 8: Students will improve their capacity to integrate modern biology with engineering principles (ABET-BE).
