BIOE 70Q: Medical Device Innovation

BIOE 70Q introduces students to the design of medical technologies and the non-technical factors that impact their clinical adoption and market success. Guest speakers include engineers, doctors, and other professionals who have helped bring ideas from concept to clinical use. Hands-on design projects will challenge students to invent their own solutions to clinical needs. No previous engineering training is required.

BIOE 123: Optics and Devices Lab

This course provides a hands-on introduction to designing, and building devices for controlling experiments in the field of bioengineering. This course focuses on the tools and concepts related to optics and electronics, but also touches on other valuable techniques such as rapid prototyping and micro-fluidics. The first part of the course consists of guided modules, while the second half of the course is project based where students design and develop their own biotic game. Prerequisites: BIOE 41 and Matlab recommended.
Terms: Win | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

BIOE 131: Ethics in Bioengineering

Bioengineering focuses on the development and application of new technologies in the biology and medicine. These technologies often have powerful effects on living systems at the microscopic and macroscopic level. They can provide great benefit to society, but they also can be used in dangerous or damaging ways. These effects may be positive or negative, and so it is critical that bioengineers understand the basic principles of ethics when thinking about how the technologies they develop can and should be applied. On a personal level, every bioengineer should understand the basic principles of ethical behavior in the professional setting. This course will involve substantial writing, and will use case-study methodology to introduce both societal and personal ethical principles, with a focus on practical applications.
