AME / CBE 30386 - Introduction to Bioengineering (Spring 2020)

Overview:                   This course provides basic science knowledge and engineering practices used by biomedical engineers toward solving problems in human medicine. Topics will include an overview of modern quantitative biology, including an introduction to cell, molecular and genetic engineering principles. An emphasis will be on an engineering analysis to describe living systems, including mass and energy balances to understand cell growth and signal transduction. Examples will include the use of general accounting equations toward problems from selected medical engineering fields (i.e., mass, energy, momentum, and charge).
