BIOE120
Biology for Engineers
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: Must have completed or be concurrently enrolled in MATH140.
Restriction: Permission of ENGR-Fischell Department of Bioengineering department.
Introduction to the functions and interactions of biological systems from a quantitative perspective. Introduction to the modern experimental techniques and methods of data analysis. Roles for bioengineers in biology, and the role of biology in bioengineering will be elucidated.
BIOE121
Biology for Engineers Laboratory
Credits: 1
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
Prerequisite: Must have completed or be concurrently enrolled in BIOE120.
Restriction: Permission of ENGR-Fischell Department of Bioengineering department.
Bioengineering encompasses numerous sub-disciplines that apply engineering principles to analyze biological systems and that utilize engineering design strategies to solve biological and biomedical problems. This course is aimed at providing students with the opportunity to learn how biology and engineering can synergistically contribute to our understanding of such problems, and to gain hands-on experience in basic techniques relevant to Bioengineering.
