  • BMEN 1025 - Computer-Aided Design & Fabrication
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2021
    Introduces engineering drawing techniques through an modern computer aided design (CAD) software, and fabrication of some of these designs. The course will begin with an introduction of spatial visualization skills, then an in-depth introduction to Solidworks, an industry standard CAD software tool, along with introduction to fabrication processes including laser cutting, 3D printing, casting and injection molding, and 3D scanning will be completed. Additional topics include geometric design and tolerancing techniques and design for manufacturing.
  • BMEN 2010 - Biomaterials
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021
    Introduces the science and engineering of biomaterials, with an emphasis on biomechanical aspects. Addresses the design, fabrication, testing, applications and performance of synthetic and natural materials that are used in a wide variety of biomedical prosthetics, implants and devices. In addition to attending lectures, students will conduct a laboratory experiment and a case study. Recommended restriction: Students in fourth semester of Biomedical Engineering curriculum or higher.
  • GEEN 1400 - Engineering Projects
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    First-year students solve real engineering design problems in interdisciplinary teams. Design projects vary by section. Curriculum focuses on iterative design process, teamwork and team dynamics, supporting design with testing and analysis, and technical writing. Completed projects are exhibited at an end-of-semester design expo. Students responsible for contributing towards their design project budget and poster costs, and purchasing safety glasses (approximately $75).
  • GEEN 3830 - Special Topics
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Explores topics of interest in engineering. Content varies by instructor and semester.
  • MCEN 4117 - Anatomy and Physiology for Engineers
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2021 / Fall 2021
    Explores human physiological function from an engineering, specifically mechanical engineering, viewpoint. Provides an introduction to human anatomy and physiology with a focus on learning fundamental concepts and applying engineering (mass transfer, fluid dynamics, mechanics, modeling) analysis. Same as MCEN 5117.
