Course Descriptions (DEI Lecturer Position)

BME Design Program (BME 250, 450, 451/452). Note that these classes are experiential in nature, which require multiple instructors to manage the teams.
BME 450: Interdisciplinary designed groups carry out biomedical instrumentation design projects. Projects are sponsored by Medical School and College of Engineering research labs and local industry. Students are exposed to the entire design process: design problem definition, generation of a design specification, documentation, design review process, prototype fabrication, testing and calibration.
BME 451/452: Two semester course - Interdisciplinary groups design-build-test biomedical instrumentation projects. Projects are sponsored by Medical School and Engineering research labs, and local industry. Students are exposed to the entire design process: Design problem definition, generation of a design specification, documentation, design review process, prototype fabrication, testing, and calibration.
BME 499/599:  This 1 semester (3 credit) instructional innovation incubator will co-create and design a NEW sophomore level BME250 course to be launched in 2018.  This course is part of a new initiative to revolutionize BME education @ U-M to address the dynamic landscape of biomedical engineering practice.  A BME instructional faculty team will apply the principles of engineering design, informed by evidence-based instructional practices and student learning principles, to explore relevant content and instructional approaches to engage underclassmen in cutting edge biomedical engineering practice.  Student and faculty teams will interview current students, alumni, and employers to identify critical skills and best practices that should be incorporated in a sophomore-level BME course.  Teams will use this information to identify course content and create exercises and projects to will be used in the new BME250 course.
BME 250: This course is proposed as part of our development of a next generation curriculum and will begin in academic year 2018. This course will replace BME 241 that provided an introduction to experimentation in circuits, systems, physical chemistry, thermodynamics, and mechanics. The course will provide experiential learning approaches using material developed in the BME 499 described above.
BME 221: This course covers the physio-chemical concepts and processes relevant to life. The emphasis lies on the molecular level. Topics: Biomimetics; Energy and Driving Forces; Biochemical Equilibria; Aqueous Solutions; Molecular Self-Assembly; Bio-Electrochemistry; Biopolymers; Molecular Recognition and Binding Equilibria in Biology.
BME 321: This course introduces topics in enzyme kinetics, enzyme inhibition, biochemical pathway engineering, mass and energy balance, cell growth and differentiation, cell engineering, bioreactor design, and analysis of the human body, organs, tissues, and cells as bioreactors. The application of bioreaction/bioreactor principles to tissue engineering is also discussed.
