Biomedical engineering 501

A directed studies project in an area of interest, supervised by a project advisor/faculty member within the faculties of Engineering, Kinesiology, Medicine, or Science. Includes a lecture component covering topics including the scientific process, ethics, review of literature, patent searches, market analysis, and technology evaluation. The project involves choosing a particular product, process, or theory relevant to biomedical engineering, researching it, and justifying its selection. A final report and presentation are required.

Undergraduate Level, Fall/ Winter

Manufacturing Engineering 529

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and devices including microsensors and microactuators. Principles of operation, material properties, fabrication techniques including surface and bulk micro­machining, IC-derived microfabrication techniques, sensing and actuation principles, sensor dynamics issues, circuit and system issues, packaging, calibration, and testing. Illustrative examples include (1) micromachined inertial sensors and actuators for manufacturing processes, (2) microactuator arrays for "smart surfaces," (3) biosensors for medical applications, and (4) transducers for aerospace applications. 

Undergraduate Level, Fall

Biomedical Engineering 301
