Biomedical Engineering (BME)

BME-356: 

Biomaterials 

3 credits 

This course introduces students to the guiding principles involved in biomaterials. Students will learn about the materials that are used to replace or come in contact with living systems. They also examine biocompatibility – the reaction of the human body to materials that are introduced. Additionally, a specific emphasis on the regulatory guidance of new biomaterials will be covered. Prerequisites: CHM-115, CHM-115L, and STG-330. Co-Requisite: BME-356L. 

BME-356L: 

Biomaterials Lab 

1 credits 

This is the lab section of BME-356. Students engage in hands-on activities to experience how materials can be used to replace or come in contact with living systems. They also examine biocompatibility – the reaction of the human body to materials that are introduced. Additionally, students practice drafting regulatory-compliant documents. Prerequisites: CHM-115, CHM-115L, and STG-330. Co-Requisite: BME-356. 

 

BME-360: 

Introduction to Biomechanics & Lab 

4 credits 

This course introduces students to a continuum approach to solid biomechanics. Engineering statics is reviewed. Generalized stress and strain relationships are mathematically derived and physically justified. For material behaviors that are linear, elastic, homogeneous and isotropic, universal solutions are developed and explored for axial loading of rods, pressurization of hollow cylinders and spheres, extension of rods and torsion of cylinders, bending of beams, and buckling of columns. Finally, the universal solutions are applied to and tested in biological systems ranging from the cellular to organ level. Prerequisites: BIO-181, BIO-181L, MAT-364, ESG-250, PHY-121 and PHY-121L. 

BME-460: 

Biomedical Instrumentation and Devices & Lab 

4 credits 

This course introduces theory of measurement and analysis from biological systems. It explores the principles and use of transducers, data recording and analysis systems, and signal processing techniques. Students will develop and utilize instrumentation to measure or transmit physiological data using computer based data acquisition. Prerequisites: BIO-360, BIO-360L, ESG-202, ESG-202L, and MAT-364. 

BME-465: 

Advanced Biomedical Instrumentation and Devices & Lab 

4 credits 

This course applies the knowledge and skills obtained from BME 460: Biomedical Instrumentation and Devices & Lab to measurements for specific organs – blood, cardiac, and respiratory. Clinical instrumentation, therapeutic and prosthetic devices, biotechnology equipment, and medical imaging systems are analyzed according to their design, manufacture and use. Finally, accessing the risk and safety associated with these devices and instrumentation is explored. Practicum/field experience hours: None. Fingerprint clearance not required. Prerequisite: BME-460. 

BME-471: 

Biomedical Design Elements I 

2 credits 

This course provides an overview of designing a marketable medical device. Students will design a biomedical system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints. This includes the design process from problem definition through concept design. FDA regulation, human factors, system safety consideration, and medical product liability will be covered. Prerequisite: STG-430. 

BME-472: 

Biomedical Design Elements II 

2 credits 

This course is a continuation of Biomedical Design Elements I. It provides a comprehensive view of designing a marketable medical device. This includes the design process from prototype, and clinical testing for market readiness. Topics covered include FDA regulation, human factors, system safety consideration, and medical product liability. Prerequisite: BME-471.
