CONTENT

The Bioengineering course provides a solid foundation in engineering design and the natural and biological sciences. The course is designed to acquaint students with current research and problems in bioengineering by introducing them to the application of engineering principles to biological and medical problems. It provides students with an understanding of the breadth of bioengineering and the knowledge and skills required to contribute to the development of the rapidly growing field of bioengineering. The course introduces the fundamentals of bioengineering provides information on cell and tissue engineering and stem cell technologies, introduces biomechanics and mechanobiological aspects, and explains the biological performance of materials. Applications of bioengineering are then explored, particularly for biosensors and diagnostic systems, therapeutic approaches, and drug delivery technologies, followed by applications in various disciplines, including but not limited to genetics, chemical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, and environmental engineering.
