Introduction to Biomedical Engineering (100-Level): This course is an overview of the field of biomedical engineering designed to introduce undergraduates with its interdisciplinary nature.  Research areas are presented by biomedical engineering faculty each week. 


Honors College: Science and Technology (100-Level): The course introduces students of all backgrounds to scientific and technological topics. These include biomedical technology, regenerative therapies, health disparities, and interfaces with the medical field.  Students read scientific literature related to their topic and learn the fundamentals of science necessary to understand their readings. The seminar also engages students in the process of scientific inquiry, while giving attention to the historical, ethical, legal, social, and economic ramifications of the topic. 


Thermodynamics (200-Level): This course introduces concepts and definitions of transfer of energy i.e.  Work and Heat. Material covers the First Law and applications,  the Second Law and Carnot theorems, entropy, thermodynamic state variables and functions and reversibility. Problems utilize ideal gas mixtures, gas-vapor mixtures and the psychrometric chart. 


Biomedical Transport Phenomena (300-Level): This course provides fundamentals of transport phenomena in biological systems, with an emphasis on physical and chemical mass transport processes that are related to artificial organs and tissue engineering applications. The course covers fundamental topics of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat and mass transport in biomedical systems and technologies. 


Experimental Methods in Biomedical Engineering (300-Level):  This course focuses on the principles of experimental design, application of statistics, and interpretation of data, modular hands-on laboratory experiments in biotransport, biological control, signal analysis, imaging, biomechanics, biomaterials, and cell and tissue engineering. 


BME Capstone Senior Design I and II (400-Level): Senior design I introduces the engineering design phase of a project development after specifications have been largely determined. Through lectures and hand-on-experience students are introduced to: Working in teams, design process, planning and scheduling (time-lines), technical report writing, proposal writing, and oral presentations. During this course, students should propose a number of design concepts, and select the most promising designs that best fulfill the required and desired specifications. Senior Design II focuses on 1) building mockup prototypes to evaluate the most promising approaches to be developed, 2) construction and evaluation of a functional device prototype in conformity with the specifications of performance defined during Senior Design I, and 3) the construction of a final product. System testing is the final stage in the verification and validation of a product. Students will carefully describe the methods to evaluate the performance, robustness, misuse and potential failure of the whole system.
