BME/CHE 466: Biomaterials (Syllabus)

This class provides an overview of biomaterials, from fundamentals to applications. Biomaterials is a strongly interdisciplinary field that works at the interface between biological systems and materials. Traditionally, this field has focused on producing and characterizing synthetic materials to replace parts of the human or animal body, but modern advances in the field have begun to use biology to create a new generation of materials. To address these advances, this class is structured into three broad categories – synthetic materials, interactions at the biology/material interface, and bio-derived materials.

CHE 449: Transfer Operations III (Syllabus)

This course will cover a selection of the many methods used by engineers to separate chemical mixtures. We encounter separation processes daily, and they represent the predominant process step in most chemical production. Although this course will focus primarily on industrial applications of chemical separations, the frameworks covered by this course can be directly applied to many burgeoning and cutting-edge applications of chemical engineering sub-disciplines, such as biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, green energy, and renewable materials.
