BME 353 TRANSPORT PHENOMENON IN BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS (MAYMESTER)
This course covers the fundamentals of fluid mechanics, heat and mass transfer in biological systems and medical devices. This course is taught in a study-abroad, Maymester format in Montpelier, France. We use a challenge-based approach where material is framed using working world problems, and students work in teams on problem sets.
BME 370/371 PRINCIPLES OF ENGINEERING DESIGN I & II
This two semester course sequence make up the biomedical engineering capstone course. Students work in teams on projects sponsored by industry, medical school physicians, and research labs. Students create innovative and novel design solutions to working world problems and present these in a written and oral format to project sponsors and the teaching team.
BME 347/381J FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOMEDICAL OPTICS
This course serves as a senior undergraduate and graduate level introduction to the field of Biophotonics. We study light scattering theory, tissue optical properties, analytical and numerical techniques for determining light propagation in tissue, light-tissue interactions, and bioheat transfer including solution methods. Applications include laser surgery, molecular imaging, nanoparticle mediated photothermal therapy, pulse and oximetry, modern microscopy techniques.
