Unformatted text preview: EBME 306: Introduction to Biomaterials: Fall 2008 Course Description: Applications of biomaterials in different tissue and organ systems. Relationship between physical and chemical structure of materials and biological system response. Choosing, fabricating and modifying materials for specific biomedical applications. Course Outcomes: 1. Recognize how the core concept of structure-function relationship is used in designing and analyzing the behavior of biomaterials. (This helps fulfill ABET outcome c “An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs.”) 2. Recognize that the variety of available polymers is used when taking a modular approach to the design, synthesis and behavior of biomaterials. (This also helps fulfill ABET outcome c.) 3. Gain an ability to identify and apply fundamental concepts of physiology, chemistry, mechanics, and materials science in the field of biomaterials engineering. (This helps fulfill ABET outcome a, “An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.)
