BEE 4550

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

Covers fundamental mechanisms that nature uses to build and control living systems at micro- and nano-meter length scales; engineering principles for fabricating micro/nano-meter scale devices; examples of solving contemporary problems in the health sector and environment.  The lab sessions will provide students with hands on experiences in cell culture, microfluidic device and live cell imaging techniques. Lecture only if taken for 2 credits, lecture and lab if taken for 3 credits.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: one year of biology, BEE 2220 or an equivalent thermodynamics course, or co-registration in BEE 3500 or permission of instructor.

Outcomes
