Applies engineering science, design methods, and system analysis to developing areas and current problems in biomedical engineering. Topics vary by semester. Recent topics include Medical Imaging Systems Theory, BME Advanced Design, BME Electronics Lab, and Systems Biology Modeling and Experimentation. Prerequisite: third- or fourth-year standing and instructor permission.
In-depth study of a biomedical engineering area by an individual student in close collaboration with a departmental faculty member. Requires advanced analysis of a specialized topic in biomedical engineering that is not covered by current offerings. Requires faculty contact time and assignments comparable to regular course offerings. Prerequisite: instructor permission.
Introduces techniques for constructing mathematical and computational models of biological processes at many levels of organizational scale from genome to whole-tissue. Topics include choice of techniques, quantitative characterization of biological properties, assumptions and model simplification, parameter estimation and sensitivity analysis, model verification and validation and integration of computational modeling w/experimental approaches. Prerequisites: BME 6101, and BME 2104 or BME 7806 (or equivalent).
Formal record of student commitment to doctoral research under the guidance of a faculty advisor. May be repeated as necessary.
