BMEN 2000 - Introduction to Biomedical Engineering
Fall 2022 / Spring 2023 / Fall 2023 / Spring 2024
Introduces important aspects of human physiology and develops a basic understanding of the biomedical engineering field. Topics include biomechanics, bioinstrumentation, bioimaging, biotechnology and biomaterials. Recommended prerequisite: high school biology.
BMEN 4010 - Biomedical Engineering Capstone Design I
Fall 2022 / Fall 2023
Offers the first in a two-course sequence of capstone design. Project supervisors and teams are paired through a pitch process, wherein teams pitch their design ideas to meet an existing need on a project. Project is in an area of biomedical engineering, such as biomedical instrumentation, biosensors, tissue engineering, biological signal processing, biological modeling and simulation, clinical imaging or informational systems, etc. Projects will be conducted by teams of typically three to five students, and projects must include significant design experience. The first semester focuses on research of background, planning, crafting of needs statement, and initial work on senior design project . Formal proposal must be approved by technical advisor.
BMEN 4020 - Biomedical Engineering Capstone Design II
Spring 2023 / Spring 2024
Continues BMEN 4010. Teams continue to develop, construct, and evaluate prototypes with consideration of real-world fiscal, regulatory, and safety conditions. Progress is monitored through a series of oral presentations and peer review of teamwork and team dynamics. Requires students to complete a working prototype or simulation as appropriate, and a final written report with oral presentation at the semester Design Expo. Written final report must be approved by the faculty.
