Field exercises in conjunction with the classroom exercises in CE 200 utilizing classical and electronic instruments and COGO/CAD software.
Field trips to construction sites provide opportunities to directly view many of the practices.
One of the oldest and largest professional engineering schools in the United States, Newark College of Engineering offers 13 undergraduate degree programs, 16 master’s and 10 doctoral degree programs. This course is open only to freshmen and new transfer students. This course offers them to critically read medical engineering articles, understand it, research it and present engineering design principles to our faculty. An overview of human physiology is presented as an introduction to subsequent core courses in the Biomedical Engineering curriculum. Course lectures and laboratories will address important issues for biomedical engineers at the introductory level; covering the origins of bio-electric signals and the instrumentation involved in collection of biopotentials from the electrodes to processing of the signals on the computer. The goal of this course is to provide students with the guidance to choose a capstone design topic and advisor conduct library/search engine background research and to prepare the design proposal for their chosen project.
Undergraduate enrollment is more than 2,500, and more than 1,100 are enrolled in graduate study. Faculty members describe their research in biomedical engineering. This will enhance their ability to both succeed professionally and to contextualize their chosen vocations. Not intended to be an exhaustive review of physiology, the course will instead emphasize key examples that highlight understanding of the interaction between the biomedical and engineering worlds. Some other topics included are the transducers/sensors and modern engineering software used in bio-instrumentation. Course lectures and laboratories will address important issues covering the mechanical fundamentals that are important bases for later learning experiences. Prerequisites: BME 393 Part of a two semester undergraduate research thesis. The course introduces the student to the definition of design as well as introducing issues of intellectual property, bioethics and safety, and professional societies.
Applications include analysis of the electrocardiogram and other electrical signals generated by the body. Work assignments facilitated by the co-op office and approved by the department. Prerequisite: BME 302 with a grade of C or better This course provides an understanding of engineering mechanics, especially as applied to biomechanical systems. Applications include signals and noise, processing of the ECG, mathematics of imaging and derivation of useful physiological parameters from input signals. The textbook material will be supplemented throughout the course to emphasize examples relative to BME. This course covers basic operational amplifier circuits as well as the operation of semiconductor diodes and transistors. Additional topics include: hierarchical structure, sensitivity analysis, parameter estimation, negative feedback control, and characteristic traits of models.
Mandatory participation in seminars and completion of a report. Students should be familiar with static equilibrium analysis and concepts of stress and strain. An introduction to digital logic circuits is also provided. Students will use models to gain insight into how a physiological system functions and to design a biomedical engineering device or procedure that interacts with the physiological system. Prerequisite: BME 302, BME 304, MATH 222, MATH 337, MATH 279, and MECH 320.
Students will be presented with problems of property characterization, failure analysis and performance testing. The quantum mechanical origins of spectroscopy, the relationship of spectroscopic behavior to thermal characteristics of a material, and the differences in approach to the chemical and physical characterization of synthetic and biological polymers are discussed. The structure and composition of the body will be covered followed by an exploration of the properties of the blood and its flow in the cardiovascular system, and the body as a heat source and as a series of compartments involved in the mass transfer of materials (such as those in the kidneys and lungs). This course is an introduction to the field of tissue engineering as a therapeutic approach to treating damaged or diseased tissues in the biotechnology industry. The course will also address practical issues in design of medical devices such as noise, resolution, linearity, and saturation. This course is offered in Studio format that involves the integration of lectures and labs into one highly participatory structure. Biological and Chemical Foundations of Biomedical Engineering. Prerequisites: Grade of C or higher in (CHEM 126 or CHEM 122) and PHYS 121. This course is an introduction to the field of biomaterials with an emphasis on the wound healing process and interactions between the human body and implanted devices fabricated from various types of biomaterials. Students will learn how to formulate a hypothesis, design a scientific based experiment, analyze data using statistics, interprete data, and describe work within oral defense and written thesis. This course is offered in Studio format that involves the integration of lectures and labs into one highly participatory structure. This course covers organic chemistry, biochemistry and cellular mechanics in sufficient depth to give biomedical engineering students a strong enough background for them to understand the introductory aspects of the discipline, which focus on the application of engineering principles to medicine and surgery. The thrust of this course will be to illuminate the processes occurring at the tissue-biomaterial interface. Prerequisite: Grade of C or higher in BME 111 and BME 301 and CS 101. Prerequisites: BME 111, BME 301, BME 302 and MATH 222 all with a C or better. This portion of the project includes library research, time and cost planning, oral and written reports, as well as construction, troubleshooting and demonstration of a working prototype. Autocad is a widely used computer program for generating engineering drawings. CE CAD teaches students the use of basic tools, such as Autocad software, used in the preparation of Civil Engineering contract documents.
