BMEN 4117 - Anatomy and Physiology for Biomedical Engineering
The main objective of this multidisciplinary course is to explore human physiological function from the viewpoint of an engineer. It provides an introduction to human anatomy and physiology with a focus on learning anatomical structures, biological signaling, physiological and pathological conditions, as well as fundamental biomedical engineering concepts that apply quantitative analyses (mass transfer, fluid dynamics, mechanics, modeling) and engineering concepts (e.g., device design to restore defective physiological functions) to understand physiology and pathology. Recommended prerequisites: BMEN 2010 or BMEN 3010 or MCEN 2024 or MCEN 3021 or MCEN 3022 or ASEN 1022) (all minimum grade C-). Same as BMEN 5117.
