This course introduces freshmen to the field of Biological Engineering (BE). Students will gain an appreciation for basic theory and practice in BE, including material balances, organizing along several length scales, simple experimental design, engineering design methodology, and professional development. Organized as three modules, the course will cover BE at the meso-scale, microscale, and in abiotic (non-living) systems. Field trips to outside engineering firms will be organized to expose students to professional practice in the field.
When Offered Fall.Outcomes
