Chemical and Biomedical Engineering

Courses taught by Professor Nolan B. Holland

Undergraduate Level:

CHE 486 Fundamentals of Polymers (3-0-3)
Emphasis on polymer molecular structure and its relation to physical properties, such as molecular weight distributions, gel point, glass transition, heat capacity, and viscosity. Other topics include polymerization kinetics; condensation esterification; emulsion polymerization; and methods of analysis, such as X-ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, and other important basic engineering properties of polymers.

ESC 270 Materials Science (3-0-3)
Structure of materials and their relationship to the mechanical and physical properties of materials, applications and uses.

Graduate Level:

BME 640 Protein Design (3-0-3)
The process and principles of protein design and synthesis, including concepts such as fundamentals of protein structure and function, gene design, gene editing, and protein expression and purification. Modern tools of molecular biology used for protein design will be introduced.

BME 653/753 Cell & Tissue Biology (3-0-3)
Essential concepts and technologies in cellular and molecular biology, as relevant to the design, application, and evaluation of biological constructs in tissue engineering, with preliminary understanding of commercial applications.

BME 655/755 Biomaterials (3-0-3)
An introduction to materials in medicine designed to develop an understanding of the terms and concepts that relate basic and applied biomaterials engineering research to medical devices.

BME 658 Medical Device Design (3-0-3)
A practical approach to learning the process and principles for medical device design. Students will learn the basic concepts of designing medical devices and through a hands-on approach. Teams of students will work together on a design project including concepts such as needs identification, FDA regulation, record-keeping, reverse engineering, human factors, prototyping, and validation.

BME 674/675 Biomedical Design Project I/II (3-0-3)
This is a two-semester sequence and students must take both courses in sequence to receive a grade. Students work in teams over the two semesters to identify a medical device need, perform a market analysis, and develop a working prototype for their product.

BME 758 Medical Devices (2-0-2)
The process and principles of medical device design, including concepts such as needs identification, FDA regulation, intellectual property, record-keeping, reverse engineering, human factors, prototyping, and validation.

CHE 586 Fundamentals of Polymers (3-0-3)
Emphasis on polymer molecular structure and its relation to physical properties, such as molecular weight distributions, gel point, glass transition, heat capacity, and viscosity. Other topics include polymerization kinetics; condensation esterification; emulsion polymerization; and methods of analysis, such as X-ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, and other important basic engineering properties of polymers.

ESC 720 Research Communications (3-0-3)
This course will enhance the ability of students to write technical papers and proposals, and to give effective oral presentations.
