Students develop computer-based problem solving techniques to solve introductory problems in Biological Engineering. Emphasis is on developing solution algorithms and implementing these with spreadsheets and computer programming.

The catalog description has been revised to reflect a change in course content.  The phrase "biomedical engineering" was removed because we no longer offer a biomedical engineering concentration.


All content relating to equation solver tools has been removed and replaced with equation solvers in Excel.

Student Learning Outcomes

Students develop computer-based problem solving techniques to solve introductory problems in Biological Engineering. Emphasis is on developing solution algorithms and implementing these with spreadsheets, and computer programming.


At the conclusion of this course, all students will be able to:



  1. List and apply the steps to solve real-world engineering problems;

  2. Clearly identify inputs and outputs required for solving engineering problems;

  3. Develop and test solution algorithms, initially by hand;

  4. Utilize sound computer programming techniques to implement solution algorithms that are     more complex and/or require numerous inputs;

  5. Demonstrate a strong foundation in the utilization of MATLAB and Microsoft Excel for problem solving, data analysis, and graphical representation of results.
