This course covers the chemistry, physics, and engineering theory underlying materials science and also discusses the diagnostic and analytical techniques necessary to assess these properties experimentally. This strong foundation prepares students to conceive and build better materials for a wide assortment of biomedical applications.

BME program is working on a unified UG program curriculum between NCSU and UNC CH. Sophomore level core courses are being offered from the BME department with accompanying laboratories.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Apply basic chemistry and physics to study all types of materials.

  2. Explain fundamental materials science theory underlying the design and processing of metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites.

  3. Integrate basic science and engineering knowledge to effectively solve technical problems.

  4. Design simple experiments and analyze those data and simulated experimental data to test materials properties.

  5. Consult published or peer-reviewed literature for necessary materials properties.

  6. Use current software (MATLAB, Mathematica, Excel, etc.) to perform engineering analyses.

  7. Implement experimental protocols towards fabrication of soft biomaterials

  8. Employ analytical tools and techniques to analyze the physical properties of biomaterials.

  9. Collect, record, process, statistically analyze and report experimental data related to the analysis of biomaterial property.

  10. Analyze the physical properties of biomaterials and evaluate relevance to medical needs.
