ENGG 183 - Cell and Tissue Engineering

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
Seminar course uses nature as a basis for engineering design. Compares and contrasts biophysical systems at the molecular and cellular levels. Examines the inner workings of a living cell and the varied mechanisms through which organs/tissues function. Enables students to appreciate engineering design considerations inherent to complete biological systems. Develops strategic insight into the proposal of bioartificial substitutes. Attempts to optimize potential substitutes by borrowing the finest structural qualities eclectically from biological lessons. Topics include cell structure, tissue engineering, biochemical kinetics, mass transfer, mathematical modeling and artificial organs.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
Junior standing in Engineering Science or permission of instructor. (Formerly Special Topics in Bioengineering.)
