Prerequisites: "C" or better in ((BIOL 2020 OR BIOL 2021) AND (CHEM 2310 OR CHEM 2311) AND CHEM 2315) AND Full Major status in Biomedical Engineering Corequisites: "C" or better in BIOEN 3301.
This course is the second in a two-semester sequence (BIOEN 3201, 3202, Human Physiology I, II) that teaches students to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to cellular and systems physiology, including function, dysfunction, and the mechanisms that underlie treatment. The course also addresses professional and ethical responsibility associated with the development, testing, and implementation (or withholding) of biomedical devices or treatments. Associated laboratory modules teach students to design, conduct, and analyze experiments, and to use the techniques, skills and tools necessary for engineering practice. Topics this semester include the nervous system, striated and smooth muscle, and respiratory, renal, and cardiovascular systems.
