BME 768 Biomedical Microsystems
This course is to examine Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) as a tool for detecting signals or performing functions for biomedical research and clinical purposes. Emphases are on the operational principles of microsensors and microactuators, fabrication processes, and the interface of microtransducers with biological subjects.
BME 767 BioMEMS Microfabrication
Overview of microfabrication technologies, including silicon microfabrication, polymer microfabrication, and advanced microfabrication topics. Microfabrication processes will also be presented to the students by several case studies, including representative microdevices in different fields.
BME 441 Biomechanics
Mechanical characterization of biological tissues at the cellular, organ, and system level; exploration of biomechanical factors of physiological and pathological conditions.
