Students apply engineering principles to physiology and medicine, developing understanding through classroom demonstrations, discussions, and experiments. They also propose and prototype medical equipment, prostheses, and artificial organs using 3D printers, computer simulations, and traditional modeling materials.
Topics include basic concepts of biochemistry, cell physiology, cell cycles, cell division, DNA structure and synthesis, protein synthesis and gene expression, tissue structure, human anatomy, and genetic engineering
