Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Introductory laboratory experience focused on integrating biological engineering and materials engineering principles by exploring key topics in materials science. Topics include biomaterial fabrication, evaluation of their physical properties and interpretation of results.

BME program is going through a curriculum change and adding labs to sophomore level required BME courses.


BME 219 is the lab component of BME 209 Introduction to Material Science and Biomaterials.
