Course Goals This course is designed to provide an introduction to biology and its application to engineering. At the end of the semester, each student should have: A basic understanding of molecular biology with application to engineering design A basic understanding of cellular biology with application to engineering design A basic understanding of anatomy and physiology with application to engineering design A basic understanding of ecology with application to engineering design Knowledge about the interface between engineering and biology Exams Three exams will be given over the course of the semester. They will be based on information presented during lectures, readings, discussions, and any handout material. The final exam will be cumulative. Quizzes/ Homework These will done by yourself online. They are meant to help you review the material and point out areas that you may not completely understand (and should ask about).
