Sem. 1. Class 3, cr. 3. (offered in alternate years). Prerequisite: senior or graduate standing in engineering or science.
MSE 597M is an elective course.
Weekly Schedule: Three 50-minute lectures.
This course presents a balanced perspective on the evolving discipline of Biomaterials Science by including information on hard biomaterials and soft biomaterials, orthopedic ideas, cardiovascular concepts, ophthalmologic ideas, and dental issues. The course will include a balance of fundamental biological concepts, materials science background, medical/clinical concerns, as well as a coverage of biomaterials past, present, and future. The aim of the course is for the student to gain a solid appreciation for the special significance of the word biomaterial as well as the rapid and exciting evolution and expansion of biomaterials science and its applications in medicine.
Relation of Course to Program Outcomes
1. an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to problems in materials engineering.
5. an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems, particularly in the context of materials selection and design.
This course is designed to provide a foundation of knowledge of biomaterial science principles.
The objective of this course is for the student to gain a solid appreciation for the special significance of the word biomaterial as well as the rapid and exciting evolution and expansion of biomaterials science and its applications in medicine. At the end of the semester, all students should identify and understand the main terms largely used in biomaterials literature, basic properties of various biomaterials, correctly associate terms with processes/phenomena, and be able to correlate related events.
Contribution of course to meeting the professional component:MSE 597M is a materials-specific technical elective course.
