Synopsis

This course applies the concepts and methods of physical science and mathematics to solving the problems of the human system functions from an engineering approach. Topics include fluid mechanics, biomass transfer, bioheat transfer and modeling of physiological systems.

Level: 2
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every July
E-Learning: BLENDED - Learning is done MAINLY online using interactive study materials in Canvas. Students receive guidance and support from online instructors via discussion forums and emails. This is supplemented with SOME face-to-face sessions. If the course has an exam component, this will be administered on-campus.
