MECH 394 Frontiers in Biomechanical Engineering
This course addresses the fundamental principles of biomechanical engineering through four introductory modules, each dedicated to one topic: biology, biomechanics, biotransport, and mechatronics. Each module introduces the background and technical principles required to understand topics in biomechanical engineering. This course content emphasizes the multidisciplinary approaches needed to understand a problem from both biology and mechanical engineering perspectives and includes guest lectures given by biomechanical engineering experts with a goal of providing students with exposure to the current biomechanical engineering research landscape. Students are presumed to have sound background in mechanical measurement, solid mechanics, kinematics and dynamics typically acquired from MECH 217, 221, 228, 321 and 328.
